Charlie Imbergamo

Who is giving in Florida, how are they giving and what motivates them to donate to nonprofits? Find out in this free on-demand video where the Florida Nonprofit Alliance presents detailed findings from its Giving in Florida research.

Giving in Florida, the first research of its kind in Florida, is a joint venture between Florida Nonprofit Alliance, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, and the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. This research aims to increase the understanding of philanthropy and provide the region’s nonprofit sector, donors and policymakers with valuable research to understand the motives behind charitable giving behavior.

  • Understand how and why Floridians give back, including specific giving information for the Central West region of Florida, the five-county Tampa Bay area, and some specific information on Hillsborough County
  • Know more about how giving and volunteering patterns change with different donor demographics and how to better connect with a wider range of donors
  • Identify areas of opportunity to enhance your fundraising and donor engagement efforts
