I only want to know how much businesses and individuals/families
contribute to nonprofit philanthropies monentarily per year. Has there
been a trend in the past ten years towards business donating more? No

The statistics on giving available from the Kauffman Foundation should
answer all your questions and provide a source for graphics for your
Giving Statistics

In brief, individuals collectively contribute far more than
corporations ($179 billion vs $13 billion), and dominate all
statistics on giving.

As for trends, the chart on "Corporate Giving as a Percentage of
Pretax Profits, 1963 - 2003" shows that corporate giving peaked in the
1980's (as a percentage of corporate income) and has dropped in recent
years, though it is higher than averages in the 1970's.

I trust this information fully answers your question, but if there's
