Join VAFRE and the AFP Central Virginia Chapter for a look at this year's Giving USA report. Come hear the latest in giving trends, facts, and figures for our industry. 

The Curtis Group is proud to present the results of Giving USA 2019. Giving USA is the longest-running, most comprehensive study on philanthropy and is published in partnership with the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. Keith Curtis, president of The Curtis Group and past chair of the Giving USA Foundation, will provide an analysis of the numbers and give recommendations on how the data can be strategically applied to your fundraising strategy. In addition to an overview of the annual report on philanthropy, this program will involve participants in the conversation on trends in giving through Q&A. This session is designed to prepare professionals and board members with information which will assist in their understanding of philanthropy on a macro level as well as tips on how the data can help them increase their fundraising results, and it will give participants an opportunity to compare their organization’s fundraising trends with those of their peers and of those in Giving USA.
