According to the Foundation Center, giving by foundations increased 1.8 percent to an estimated $41.67 billion in 2011 (in comparison to 2010), while giving by corporations held steady in 2011 totaling $14.55 billion. Additionally, giving by individuals, bequest, and family foundations amounted to 88 percent of total giving in 2011 totaling over $240 billion in contributions.
