    A Closer Look at Philanthropy in Southern Arizona

    May 9, 2014 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    Presented by Stephanie La Loggia

    Stephanie will help us examine the “pie of philanthropy” in Southern Arizona: howStephanieLsm much comes from individual donors, grantmaking organizations (foundations and grantmaking public charities) and volunteers.



    Among the questions discussed and answered will be

    1. What causes are supported?
    2. How much money stays in Southern Arizona?
    3. How much comes in from outside the area?
    4. How much value is added by volunteers?
    5. How can we grow the pie?

    Stephanie will share how this information can be utilized by organizations and fundraising professionals in their work to locate and channel resources toward vital community services and solutions.

    This presentation is based research conducted by the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, including Arizona Nonprofits: Scope of the Sector, the Arizona Giving and Volunteering Report, and the Arizona Grantmakers Report, which is conducted in partnership with the Arizona Grantmakers Forum.
