Americans give at record levels in 2014
In its annual report on philanthropy, released June 16, the Giving USA Foundation finds that Americans gave in record numbers in 2014 — a total of more than $358 billion. One thing to note: About 72% of all giving comes from individuals like our donors and the many people who gave to our local nonprofits on Give Day Tampa Bay. Each person — and each gift — really does make a difference.
