Anybody that knows me knows that politics are not my forté.  In fact, I find the entire campaign season about as compelling as watching ’90s reruns of the (not so) riveting Power Rangers.  Point blank, I just don’t care too much for a lot of dramatics and high-flying antics.

However, this past August, The Chronicle of Philanthropy released an interesting report called, “How America Gives.”

As its name suggests, this study provides an in-depth look at individual giving across the country; segmenting the data in a variety of ways including along political party lines.  If your nonprofit is interested in beefing up the way in which you engage individual donors, then this report is for you.
