On July 10, 2006, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) published the results of their yearly State of Fundraising Survey. Now in its fifth year, this AFP-sponsored study uses e-mail to solicit its member organizations in the U.S. and Canada to look back on their fundraising goals for the preceding year and determine whether they performed better or worse than before. We'll leave the U.S. results aside (they had a poorer showing than Canada anyway). The good news is the 2005 report heaps praise upon Canadian fundraisers. The bad news is that the future may not be so rosy for Canadian charities seeking funds in the future."
