The State of Philanthropy since the Recession

During and after the recession, most charities were forced to operate with less money.

Nancy Renkes is Vice President and Chief Partnerships Officer of the River Bend Food Bank. She says the recession did affect most non-profits. The economic turn-around took several years. And during that time, Renkes says giving to the food bank and other charities was stagnant.
