"I was most surprised by the fact that the amount of giving increased so dramatically given that assets were down 23 percent," says the study's author, Anita Gunn Shirley, assistant director of foundation relations for Duke University Medical Center and author of several reports on philanthropy in the state.
While the increase in giving was good news for North Carolina nonprofits, the growth likely will not continue in 2010 and 2011, says Shirley.
The 2008 funding increase in large part was due to foundations' practice of basing grantmaking budgets on the rolling average of the prior three to five years of assets, meaning that 2008 grants budgets included asset totals from prior years of solid investment gains.
With the poor asset performance of 2008, many funders suspended grantmaking in 2010 to compensate for the lower value of their endowments.
"I think it will be down pretty significantly," Shirley says of foundation grantmaking for this year.

Giving by state’s foundations tops $1 billion | Philanthropy Journal

While the number of foundations in North Carolina edged up less than 1 percent in 2006 to 3,032, their combined assets jumped 14 percent to nearly $15.3 billion over the same period, says the report, an analysis prepared for NCGives by Anita Gunn Shirley, assistant director of foundation relations at Duke University Medical Center.
"North Carolina is in a great position," says Shirley."Philanthropy is flourishing in the state."

Shirley expects this trend to continue.
"Foundations perhaps got more hesitant about funding educational institutions because their alums are a natural donor base that should be supporting their institutions," she says.
Given that individuals are responsible for 80 percent of charitable donations, Shirley says, educational institutions have moved toward hiring major gifts officers to raise dollars from individuals.
"Social services groups, like food banks and homeless shelters, don't have a wealthy client base to tap," she says.
