Inspiring people to take online surveys is tough! We are grateful to the 3,573 people who have taken the 2018 Global Trends In Giving Survey thus far. This year we are getting more participants from outside of the United States, but we definitely need more diversity in our survey respondents for the data to truly reflect the global donor community. The survey is available in five languages – العَرَبِيَّة, English, español, français, and português – to reach a global audience. Anything you can do to help spread the word about the survey to your corner of the world is greatly appreciated. The 2018 Global Trends in Giving Report will be released September 17, 2018 and is a sister report to the 2018 Global NGO Technology Report.
