Win More Grants. Make a Bigger Difference.


Giving USA 2018: The Annual Report on Philanthropy is the seminal publication on charitable giving in the United States. For over 60 years, fundraisers, nonprofit leaders, donors and volunteers, scholars, and other individuals who work in or with the charitable sector have counted on Giving USA to provide the most comprehensive charitable giving data available.

At this event, presented by CCS Fundraising, Foundation Center West and the Commonwealth Club, local philanthropic and nonprofit leaders will review national data and regional statistics pertaining to Bay Area giving with a special focus on trends in tech philanthropy. Philanthropic giving—whether to hospitals, universities, social services, environment, the arts, or other local nonprofits---impacts the lives of all now and into the future.

CCS Principal and Managing Director, Rick Happy, will  facilitate an informative discussion with respected local leaders.
