For the 10th consecutive month, fundraising is on the rise.  The latest numbers from Blackbaud show that from March to May, overall charitable revenue went up 11.3% from 2010.  These numbers come from $2.3 billion in 12 months revenue from 1,383 nonprofits.  In addition, organizations of all sizes are experiencing growth for the first time since the Great Recession.  Those specific numbers are as followed:

In addition these numbers, Blackbaud had other data to share:
