Cha r i t i es Mobile Giving Trends Charity donors are increasingly drawn to mobile giving. Last year, online giving was up 9% from the previous year, with about 28% of all online donations being made on mobile devices. In 2014, only 9% of online donations came from mobile devices. Charitable organizations can incorporate promotional products into their outreach to show donors how easy it is to give right from their phones.
