Our President W. Keith Curtis just published an opinion piece in the The Virginian-Pilot, “Don’t Just Read the Headline about Charitable Giving.”
Keith shares his thoughts on the state of philanthropy in the U.S., noting:

The big picture is that even amid economic uncertainty, Americans gave over $499 billion to charity last year! While this represents a 3.4% decrease in current dollars, it comes on the heels of two-record breaking years due in part to our country’s outpouring of support for the pandemic and issues of racial and social injustice.”
