Pareto research shows corporate fundraising income hit

23 charities in Australia shared their data to see if there was any impact of an economic downturn in the first two quarters of 2008. They found:

* No impact on regular giving
* No impact on individual donations
* Corporate income down

We can't prove that the corporate decline is because of the fear of recession, but we do know the economy had not hit these charities' donations. Yet? These are mostly large charities, with diverse income sources.

Maybe those with less diverse fundraising portfolios will be hit. Any evidence, please email

More detail in my whitepaper, available by emailing here.
