The economy is hitting charities particularly bad. Most people have seen their 401K/investments drop by around 50%, so charitable giving had dried up to an alarming degree. I went to a YMCA fundraiser late last year that was downright embarassing. I hope this group can hang on, but a lot of them will disappear.
