"How much do I hear for some metrics on giving?"

"Ninety-nine percent of the $14.6 billion raised by nonprofits in auction in 2005 was raised offline." (Forbes, August 14, 2006, P. 105)

I love that sentence. 99%. $14.6 Billion. Offline. That's data for you.

Of course, Forbes (the Magazine - old company) got the data from Cmarket and (web-based technology firms - new companies).

The biggest online auctioneer - Ebay - has a Giving Works program that also supports online auctions for nonprofits.
