Churches Lost $1.2 Billion In Donations During The Recession

The Washington Post reported that, according to the 2012 Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches, church members gave $29 billion to their churches in 2010, which represents a drop of 2.2 percent—a loss of $1.2 billion. This is nearly three times as much as the $431 million loss reported in 2009. The editor of the Yearbook, Rev. Eileen Linder, said the losses "provide clear evidence of the impact of the deepening crises in the reporting period."
