Religious Organizations in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Religious Organizations in the US

Over the five years to 2019, Religious Organizations industry revenue, measured in total donations to religious organizations, is estimated to grow. Surveys by the Pew Research Center and Gallup Inc. have shown slow decreases over time in church attendance and in the importance of religion to individuals and society. In addition, individuals reporting religion to be not very important to them has been increasing. Nevertheless, the number of people who do consider religion to be very important remains the majority. Over the five years to 2024, revenue is expected to continue its upward path at significantly slowed rate. Despite growing disposable income, reduced tax incentives associated with charitable giving are anticipated to weigh significantly on donations by individuals.
