Fenton has released the 2010 Fenton Forecast, the results of a survey of 1,000 charitable donors that looks at public perspectives on the leadership and effectiveness of nonprofits. The survey reveals that most Americans have a positive view of nonprofits but that a majority will give less to nonprofits next year. The survey provides interesting information about technology (nonprofits need to increase use of social media), the ways people judge nonprofits (stewardship of funds, trustworthyness, and the provision of valuable services are the most important factors), and which nonprofits are perceived as being the most effective (the top 3 are the American Diabetes Association, the Special Olympics and the Red Cross). To see the survey, go here.
