Charitable giving in the uk research 2013

544 views

Published on

We have recently commissioned some independent research exploring charitable giving in the UK and the changing behaviour to drive growth in the charity sector.

- Over two thirds (68%) of the UK population have donated to a charity in the past 12 months
- Medical Research and Children’s charities are among the most popular causes
- At a total level, face-to-face and direct debit donations are the most popular means of donations
- The older age-groups are generally more likely to donate to charity
- Older donors generally give more to charity and are more likely to make regular payments
