PORTLAND - A new report issued Thursday by the Giving in Oregon Council shows that charitable giving in Oregon steadily increased over the last decade and topped $1 billion for the first time in 2003, the most recent year tax data is available.
The council is a committee of The Oregon Community Foundation, and this is its 10th anniversary report.
Giving increased every year over the decade with the one exception of the recession in 2001-2002, when giving declined by 2.2%."
