Did you know: US charitable contributions slumped 3.6% in 2009 as the recession crimped gift giving, according to an annual survey released in June 2010 that showed the steepest decline since 1974. The survey by Giving USA Foundation and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University showed charitable contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations fell to $303.75 billion in 2009, from $315.08 billion in 2008. Moreover, foundation grants saw a sharp 8.9% decline to $38.44 billion.
