NAB Charitable Giving Index: Indepth report – February 2013

The NAB Charitable Giving Index grew by 2.6% (12-month average) in February 2013 – only slightly faster than inflation – down from 8.3% in the same period one year earlier. There was, however, wide variance in performance by individual charity sub-groups. Health & Disability charities and Animals & Environment charities reported faster growth relative to the previous year, but there was a big pullback in giving to Humanitarian Services charities.

The average annual donation size for all charities was $291 per donor in the year to February – a fall of 1% compared with a year earlier. Humanitarian Services have the biggest annual donation size of $360 per donor (down by 1.1%).

The Index also shows that while Humanitarian Services attracted the largest share of giving in the year to February (30.3%), all other charity segments grew their relative market share, except for Children/Family charities whose share remained unchanged.
