Nonprofits started to recover last year from the fundraising slump that had plagued their efforts since September 11, according the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ third annual State of Fundraising Survey. The association asked over 3,000 nonprofit fundraisers about the results of their efforts over 2003, and 73 percent of respondents said they raised the same or more money than in 2002. Education charities claimed the best results, increasing their fundraising on average by nearly 12 percent, followed by environmental and religious groups, while arts and cultural organizations increased their totals on average by less than one percent. The survey also found that charities are relying more and more on online fundraising: 47 percent said they solicited via the Internet in 2003, compared to 34 percent in 2002. [3/29/04]
