Producing and using regional giving studies has become a key strategy of many regional associations of grantmakers to fulfill their missions and goals. If regional associations want to be recognized and respected as knowledge centers by their key stakeholders (members, the media, elected officials, nonprofits, donors, etc.), they will need to be able to provide a comprehensive picture of the breadth and depth of private charitable resources in their regions. At a minimum, a regional association needs to be able to paint a picture of the charitable activities of its members. At a maximum, the association should be able to describe the giving activities of a broad range of other philanthropic entities that contribute to the region’s quality of life.
