The recently released 2012 Giving USA Report confirms what Hartsook knows well: money is still being given away.  In fact, a lot of money is being given away.  The report confirms that U.S. taxpayers gave $298 billion to nonprofit organizations in 2011, three percent more than the $290 billion they gave in 2010.  Below is a sampling of Hartsook clients’ and other successes to inspire your growing philanthropy story.
