Of reporting nonprofits, year-end online giving on the rise

An early January call from Paul Spence, Vice President of Development of City Gospel Mission, inquiring what The Yunker Group was hearing about 2018 year-in giving, particularly online giving, prompted a brief 12-question survey being sent to a cross-section of Greater Cincinnati /Northern Kentucky charitable organizations.


What follows is the result of responses by 35 percent of the 125 regional nonprofits invited to participate. Given the survey deadline of 14 January 2019 and before all year-end giving could be analyzed, please consider the following anecdotal rather than scientific. Nonetheless, this brief survey provides a snapshot into online donor support of nonprofits in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

The Yunker Group, Inc., wishes to thank Melissa S. Brown & Associates for collaborating on this regional survey of online giving at year-end 2018.
