The next section reviews the year in terms of sources and uses of contributions. The following sections review the legal and legislative environment, giving worldwide, gifts of $1 million or more, and some planned giving instruments. A section of tables provides data on giving by source and use in both current and inflation-adjusted dollars, comparisons of 1996 and 1995 estimates, giving as a percent of gross domestic product (1966-96), individual gifts and personal income (1966-96) and corporate gifts and pretax income (1966-96).
