Each year, religion receives the largest proportion of charitable support. In 2016, that represented $122.94 billion, more than twice the amount given to the next highest nonprofit sector, education, which received $59.77 billion.

Join The Giving Institute and Giving USA Foundation for their 2017 Gurin Forum, “The Impact of Religion on Philanthropy." During this November 8 webcast, hosted live from downtown Chicago, expert panelists will discuss the important changes occurring in America's religious environment and their impact on philanthropy. They will explore the trends revealed in the Giving USA Special Report, "Giving to Religion," available October 24 on GivingUSA.org.
