Hartsook Clients Exceed Giving USA's Annual Report of Philanthropy Standard... Again

Giving USA's 2015 Annual Report on Philanthropy showed a four percent increase in giving. Yet, once again, Hartsook clients exceeded expectations with 98.6% raising money above the Giving USA standard. In fact, for 30 years, Hartsook clients have outperformed Giving USA's reported increase by a substantial margin. Fundraisers are starting to ask how a report on money raised last year can help grow philanthropy. And if it doesn't help, what can?
