Giving in Oregon 2012 Tracking Philanthropy Through Gifts to Nonprofits

Nov 01, 2012
  • Description

The Giving in Oregon project of The Oregon Community Foundation has documented philanthropy in Oregon for more than a decade. Giving in Oregon offers an objective analysis of donations to 10,369 Oregon nonprofit organizations in 2010 (the most recent data available), representing 68% of the state's registered 501(c)3s.

The purpose of this report is twofold: to provide an objective overview of charitable giving in Oregon, and to challenge ourselves individually to be part of the giving community. While the amount given is important, the act of giving is equally significant.
