Swedes are donating more to charities than ever before, according to new data from Swedish Fundraising Control.

Last year, people in Sweden donated SEK 7.2 billion to charities, which is up by SEK 100 million compared to the year before. According to the organisation that monitors how charities use the money donated to them, Swedish Fundraising Control, this can partly be explained by the refugee situation.

Also donations made by companies and organisations have gone up. The overall income for charities with an official fundraising account reached SEK 19,8 billion, which is an increase by SEK 324 million compared to 2015.

In Sweden, an official fundraising account, belonging to an approved charity, will have a giro number that starts with the numbers 90. There are currently 425 organisations with an official 90-account that are fundraising in Sweden.
