America's family foundations gave $20.6 billion in 2010, but their total giving did not reach its pre-recession peak of $21.1 billion in 2008. According to the Foundation Center's Key Facts on Family Foundations, the 1.1 percent increase in family foundation giving between 2009 and 2010 marks a reversal of the previous year's 3.4 percent decline. The report examines family foundation giving by issue area, type of support, population group served, and geographic location. It also details differences in the size of the boards of family foundations.
