BY DONOR

Individual donors contribute only 11 percent of the gifts on the MDL, but these constitute nearly 40 percent of the total dollars.

You can discover this and more by browsing data about specific donors, viewing statistics by donor type and comparing giving trends across subsectors. The charts below show the types of donors that make million dollar gifts, how giving has changed over time, and what portion of gifts and dollars each type of donor has contributed on the Million Dollar List. The table below shows all million dollar gifts given by all donors. Users can browse donors by amount of giving, number of gifts, location, or search for specific names. Use the dynamic search function at the bottom of the table to find detailed data about donors, including total number and dollar amount of gifts given and an itemized list of all gifts by individual donors. By clicking on a specific donor, users can examine each charitable donation made by the selected donor and see a list of the donor’s million dollar gift recipients.
