Americans 'pessimistic' about economy, but charitable giving to 'remain steady or increase' in 2022, suggests new study by DickersonBakker

USA Charitable Giving

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Americans are "very pessimistic" about the economy, but the nation's nonprofit organizations look set to ride out the storm as donors focus on the greater good, a new nationwide research study suggests.

"Despite widespread donor pessimism about the economy, it does not appear that donors intend to significantly reduce their charitable donations this year," says the annual Donor Insight Study by nonprofit consultancy firm DickersonBakker ( The national online survey of 2,358 largely faith-based donors took place mid-year.

Stop Digital Currency Tyranny

URGENT; ACT NOW: On September 16, the Treasury Department officially recommended that the U.S. federal government explore the creation of a digital currency. This is a major step toward such a radical action, and it follows Biden’s March 2022 executive order that also does this. The Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve would likely work together to create this tyrannical digital currency. More than ever, it’s necessary for Congress to enact S. 3954 and H.R. 6415, to ban such an action — contact your U.S. representative and senators to do this!

Holding Sale Tag

In a centrally planned economy, all outcomes are the same and consumer demand is meaningless. You want two-ply toilet paper? Sorry, this month we only produced one-ply. Even though the principles of capitalism are obvious, even capitalists are tempted to join the communists and proclaim their belief in equality of outcomes.

Last year, Old Navy clothing company made a bold announcement: all the same products at all the same price — regardless of size. It has been a disaster. Under the banner of "inclusivity", Old Navy removed their petites and plus-size departments, and then offered every pattern in all sizes from XS to 4X. Clothing cannot be easily sized up or sized down and still look attractive. Old Navy sold out its middle sizes, but since they made each and every size for all their stores to display, they were left with quantities of tiny and large clothing — which were comically offered at all the same price. The demands of Equity do not allow for fashion. Under communism, you must wear what the factory produces.

ACT NOW: Members of Congress are seeking to enact legislation to prevent the Federal Reserve from issuing a digital currency, which would decimate personal privacy and implement a full-fledged surveillance state.

H.R. 6415 is sponsored by Representative Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) and cosponsored by Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), while S. 3954 is sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and cosponsored by Sens. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Both bills’ texts are short and straightforward. S. 3954 — whose text is similar to H.R. 6415 — states:

No Federal reserve bank may offer products or services directly to an individual, maintain an account on behalf of an individual, or issue a central bank digital currency directly to an individual.

A digital currency is a major and imminent threat to Americans’ liberty and privacy.
