"The Association of FundRaising Professionals, in a survey of 3,000 charities across the nation, reported that 73 percent had 2003 donations that equaled or exceeded the previous year's. A survey a year earlier found only 60 percent with flat or growing donations.
'We have to keep in mind that 2001 and 2002 were some of the worst years for charitable giving over the past 40 years,' said Paulette Maehara, the association's president and CEO, in a press release. 'Charitable giving, while not outright decreasing, was very flat. While our survey can't measure exactly when it happened, at some point in 2003, charitable giving turned the corner.'
