The Network for Good Digital Giving Index

Network for Good created the Digital Giving Index to provide insights on charitable giving for nonprofits seeking to strengthen relationships with donors and companies seeking to engage with consumers and employees. The Digital Giving Index examines giving behavior across Network for Good’s online donation platform. This Index builds on data and observations from The Online Giving Study, created in 2010, and is updated regularly to provide snapshots of the state of online giving.

For more insight on donor trends, review our 2015 Online Giving Trends dashboard.
