Charitable giving rose 5.4 percent last year to a record $358.4 billion, according to estimates released today by "Giving USA," the annual snapshot of American philanthropy.

The figures show that donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations last year topped the record giving figure achieved in 2007, just before the recession started to affect donation figures. The recovery was the shortest on record after such a devastating and deep recession and was also far faster than experts had predicted. Some had said it would take a decade or more until giving bounced back.
