HARTFORD, CT -- Total charitable donations are on the rise in Connecticut, but fewer people are giving, a report released last week from the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy found. In its Connecticut Giving Report, the council shared how both individuals and foundations gave more money in 2015, the latest year for which data is available. Giving from foundations rose from $1.02 billion in 2014 to $1.2 billion in 2015, while individual donations rose from $3.4 billion to $3.48 billion over the same period.
