For the second year in a row, The Chronicle is analyzing daily online-fundraising totals for charities that process donations through Network for Good.
The 14,300 charities included in this tally represent all nonprofits that collected donations through Network for Good in 2011, 2012, and 2013 but not all of the roughly 40,000 organizations that use the online-giving platform each year. New data will be added every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through early January.
All giving is calculated using Eastern time, so each day includes giving on the East Coast from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. and, for example, from 9 p.m. to 8:59 p.m. on the West Coast.
