Charitable giving in Massachusetts in 2014 rose 7.7% over 2013 levels, lagging national giving, which increased 9.3% last year, both down from the year before, a trend that is expected to continue through 2015, according to a newly released report. The Atlas of Giving, a Dallas-based organization that tracks charitable giving, said growth last year was driven by “favorable economic factors that drive giving, an increasing number of nonprofits, the impact of donor advised funds and new and more effective fundraising technologies and techniques.”
