Florida Individual Giving Survey
The Florida Nonprofit Alliance in partnership with Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has commissioned a statewide survey to for our state’s full-time and part-time residents to survey their giving habits. This research has never been conducted in the state of Florida.
“Florida is now the third most populous state in the nation. With this survey, we hope to identify how Floridians choose to donate their time, talent and treasure. Imagine what our nonprofits could do if we retained more of Florida’s philanthropic wealth in the state and directed it toward Florida’s nonprofits. By doubling the rate of Floridians who volunteer, we can move from the bottom to the top quartile,” said Sabeen Perwaiz, executive director of FNA.
It is important to understand the preferences of our state’s residents to determine how to reach them and keep them engaged as a sector. Nonprofits are also facing an uncertain giving climate with the recent changes in charitable deductions. This survey will allow us to see if charitable giving has decreased because of Federal Tax Reform.
The survey launched on May 15, 2019 and will close on August 15, 2019. The FNA study was funded primarily by Wells Fargo, Jessie Ball duPont Fund and The Community Foundation of Northeast Florida.
The survey had the following objectives:
Survey questionnaires were reviewed by University of Florida’s Nonprofit Management and Leadership office.
