In April of this year, Dunham+Company commissioned a donor confidence study to seek to understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic was having on donors and, potentially, giving. In July, with the pandemic going on its fifth month here in the US, we began to wonder if things had shifted with donors. And it has. The updated findings paint a picture of resilience among donors and their commitment to give, but also a more sober view of the economic recovery.  Get your free updated copy of this national survey of donors HERE.
