In South Florida, one of the nation's most affluent regions, charitable contributions increased dramatically throughout all sectors since 1997 - individually, through foundation and federated giving, and on a corporate level.
That's one of the conclusions in South Florida Gives, a comprehensive analysis of philanthropic giving commissioned by the Donor's Forum in Miami. Total giving nationally crossed the $200 billion threshold for the first time, growing 6.6 percent from $190.79 billion in 1999 to $203.45 billion in 2000.
