American charities seriously suffered during the economic downturn, as individual givers tightened purse strings and corporate donors were forced to cut back. While nonprofits expect 2011 to be an improvement over previous years, they're taking a big dose of caution alongside their optimism. According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, major nonprofits expect a median rise of around 4.7% in giving in 2011, an improvement over 2010's 3.5% median gain. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 11 Largest Charities in America.
Generous individuals and billionaires took a lead, accounting for 71% of these total givings, while only 3.9% of the donations came from corporations. An important data point suggests that most of the charity donations go to the religious groups in the world. In 2015, a whopping $119 billion was given to religion-based charities, while $57.48 billion was donated to education charities. A large part of the charity donations come from these 10 most charitable countries in the world.
