Which country is the world's most charitable nation? Based on the latest independent statistics from the World Giving Index 2011, Australia was ranked as third globally in terms of total charitable contributions of any kind. It was reported that Australians annually per head of capita are demonstrating their generosity by primarily 'donating money' (71%), followed by 'helping a stranger' (68%) and 'volunteering their personal time' (36%).

Therefore to better understand the charitable giving behaviour amongst Australians specifically, i-Link has recently conducted an online poll of our LiveTribe research panelists (N = 620) to investigate our charitable focus and general donation priorities.

Upon completing an online survey, LiveTribe offers all our members an option to donate their member rewards directly to one of our partner charity organisations. Thus, the proportion of people reported here that donate via online research activities will not be reflective of the general Australian public and is specific to those who are members of an online research only panel.How often do people support a charity?> Very frequently it appears, once a month or more through financial contribution (32%) and/or donating their member reward points via online research activities (35%).> Another way of showing their support is by contributing gifts, which was reported at 2 – 3 times a year (37%).
