501(c) Success: Giving USA Report with Dr. Patrick Rooney Share:

Friday, June 21 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO 64110


For over 60 years, nonprofit leaders, fundraisers and donors have relied on the comprehensive giving data in Giving USA: The Annual Report on Philanthropy. The research in this annual report estimates all giving to charitable organizations across the United States.

Presenter Dr. Patrick Rooney offers a first look at the soon-to-be released and widely anticipated 2019 edition of Giving USA. He will offer critical observations about current giving trends and where philanthropy is headed in the United States. Of special interest in the report this year is how the giving landscape may have been impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Will the 2018 growth in charitable giving continue?
