Here are the highlights from a new survey of more than 2,500 charities, I am struck by how much worse things may be here in Utah
- 33% saw donations fall in the first nine months of the year - In Utah almost twice as many 64% have seen donations decrease since the start of 2010.
- 1 in 5 expects to make cuts in spending next year because of the poor fund-raising climate, - In Utah 40% had already cut their budgets
- 7% said they are in danger of closing down next year because of financial problems. - here more than 30% were concerned about the future of their agencies
This really has me concerned. What is different about Utah? What do we need to do differently to stop this trend?
