Less Than Half of US Households Give to Charity; There's Been 16.6% Decline in Giving Since 2000

 The number of U.S. households contributing to charitable causes fell below 50% in 2018, according to a report from the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the Good Faith Media website reports today (August 2, 2021).

Only 49.6% of households engaged in charitable giving, a 16.6% decline from the year 2000.

"We've seen a downward trend in households' participation in giving since the Great Recession, but this is the first time that only half of U.S. households donated to charity," said Una Osili, Ph.D., associate dean for research and international programs, in announcing the report.
