Double-digit Growth Continues for Online Fundraising

The Blackbaud Index, which was updated today, is reporting that in October, overall giving was up 4.9% over 2009 and online giving was up 16.2%.

The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving launched in June 2010 and was followed by the release of The Blackbaud Index of Online Giving in July. These indices are updated on the 15th of each month and are based on a three-month moving average of year-over-year percent changes in revenue. They represent the most comprehensive and timely sources of charitable giving available.
