All signs are pointing to a robust Giving Tuesday haul yesterday as nonprofits report big increases in their fundraising.

Online donations processed by Blackbaud on Giving Tuesday rose 90 percent, to $19.2-million from some $10-million during last year’s event. The average gift online yesterday was $142, up from $102 on Giving Tuesday 2012, Blackbaud says.
