Malabar, FL, August 25, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (http://nccs.urban.org/statistics/quickfacts.cfm) there are currently over 1.5 million tax-exempt organizations in the United States including 1,097,689 public charities, 105,030 private foundations, 368,337 other types of nonprofit organizations and as of May 2016, there are an estimated 312,373 congregations.
The economic impact of nonprofits on the US economy is over 5.3% of the GDP and a full 25% of US citizens volunteer at least once per year to carry out these good services.
Charitable contributions by individuals, foundations, bequests, and corporations reached $358.38 billion in 2014, an increase of 7.1% from the revised 2013 estimates and after adjusting for inflation.
Individuals gave $258.51 billion in 2014, an increase of 5.7 percent from 2013 while Foundations gave $50.9 billion in 2012, up just less than one percent from 2011.
Of total giving in 2012:
72% came from individual (living donors)
4% came from corporations (excludes corporate foundations)
8% came from individuals (bequest)
16% came from foundations
These numbers suggest that despite the increase in the number of nonprofit organizations, the pool of money from grant sources has not grown as fast as the demand resulting in greater competition.
