Phi­lan­thropy up 11%

Connecticut Post - - BUSINESS -

Con­necti­cut res­i­dents and foun­da­tions do­nated $5 bil­lion to phil­an­thropic causes in 2015, ac­cord­ing to es­ti­mates by the Con­necti­cut Coun­cil for Phi­lan­thropy, an 11 per­cent in­crease from 2014 and a record level. Nearly three in four Con­necti­cut house­holds do­nated to char­i­ties in 2015, the coun­cil de­ter­mined, but the num­ber of state res­i­dents sup­port­ing char­i­ta­ble groups was down 10 per­cent from 10 years ear­lier.
