A new report from the Secretary of State’s office shows charitable giving in North Carolina is drastically down.
Latest numbers show giving at nearly $21.5 million dollars. That’s down by more than $10 million dollars from the year before.
Secretary of State Elaine Marshall says she’s not surprised the economy continues to have an effect on donations to charities and non-profits. But she is disappointed solicitors are hauling in a bigger chunk of the money.
