Giving report in hand, er, on screen

On Friday, I got a nice email from Jamie L. Thompson, the Unitarian Universalist Association Stewardship and Development Office Coordinator with the copy of the Annual Report on Giving I requested.

Why wasn’t it online for general download? “[I]n order to respect the privacy of individual donors.” A bit cautious, but see with development (and not tech) eyes, perfectly understandable. The last thing I would want to do is field calls trying to comfort donors that their public information was, perhaps, too public. (Which presumably is why the congregational portion is online.)

I’ll comment on the report as time permits. Go to then email from there to get your own. There’s a bug on that page which keeps inquirers from ordering it directly, which is being addressed.
