Foundation giving surges in North Carolina

PJ reports today on a new study that says charitable foundations in North Carolina have multiplied, and increased their assets and giving, but those assets are concentrated among the state’s urban areas and largest foundations, and the focus of foundation giving overall has shifted.

PJ also reports today on a new study that shows endowments at U.S. colleges and universities earned 10.7 percent on their investments last year.

And PJ reported recently that a separate study found earnings for higher-education endowments in the U.S. grew 10.6 percent last year.

One key, the studies show, has been the trend toward alternative investments.
