SEATTLE – American charities have weathered a significant drop in giving this year, and while they’re hoping for a holiday miracle, a recent survey shows they will probably see a decrease in year-end generosity. In light of the economic downturn, only 38 percent of Americans say they are more likely to give a charitable gift as a holiday present this year, compared to 49 percent last year, according to a survey conducted by Harris Interactive to be released Monday.

Many nonprofits are feeling the pinch from today’s challenging economic climate. As the excerpt above from the Associated Press poll shows, the tough times are impacting charities’ fundraising efforts and their supporters’ donation levels, even during the traditional year-end season of giving.
