A recent report shows that the charitable donations in LA county have declined since the Great Recession; giving dropped to $6B in 2013, $1B less than 2006.
"Charitable giving in Los Angeles County dropped off after the 2007 recession and still hasn’t fully recovered, according to a new study from the California Community Foundation and the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
"Angelenos donated $6.03 billion to charities in 2013, down from $7.16 billion in 2006. While household incomes in California have not returned to pre-recession levels, the study found Angelenos donated 2% of their adjusted gross income in 2013 compared to 2.4% in 2006."--Alice Walton, the Los Angeles Times
