The NonProfit Times - One Third Of Donors Skip Giving In Some Years

The NonProfit Times - The Leading Business Publication For Nonprofit Management: "One Third Of Donors Skip Giving In Some Years

Roughly six in 10 U.S. households contribute to charity routinely, according new findings from the Center on Philanthropy Panel Study (COPPS) at Indiana University.

The ongoing survey asked the same 8,000 families about their charitable gifts made in 2000, 2002 and 2004. While the total percentage of households that gave was similar in all three years (67 to 69 percent), it was not always the same households. The study found that a fairly large proportion of all U.S. households -- nearly one third -- shift between donating and not donating."
