Jeff Shaw, director of public policy at the CT Nonprofit Alliance, which represents small- to medium-sized nonprofits, said the recent survey results are concerning, but he warned it's too early to determine whether the downturn in donations is a temporary blip that will self-correct once people are more familiar with the new tax law.

Shaw said individual nonprofits' ability to handle a possible reduction in donations will likely depend on the resources they focus on donor relations.

"The ones that have dedicated marketing staff or people that are running development programs, they're probably going to be a little better prepared in weathering the storm," Shaw said. "[Smaller nonprofits are] really going to feel the pinch more because they're just not going to have the resources to adjust their approach."
