Participate in PJ ‘snapshot’ survey regarding donations, tax rate changes

As the federal income tax filing deadline approaches, Philanthropy Journal invites readers to participate in a quick "snapshot" poll to tell us a little bit about the types of nonprofits you donate to - and whether the recent changes to the payroll tax and highest marginal tax rate will change how much you plan to donate in the coming year.  

The poll - available by clicking here - is just three questions and should take no more than a minute of your time. Results will be part of a story written by NC State Professor Richard Clerkin that will be posted in our April 15 edition. The poll will close at 5 p.m. April 8, so please take a minute to submit yours now.

However, significantly more Trend Spotter participants in this survey have engaged in formative evaluation (62 percent) compared to a recent national sample (17 percent).
