American Express Charitable Gift Survey
Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University
Report Winner of the 2008 John Grenzebach Award for Outstanding Published Scholarship from CASE, this was the first nationally representative study to address two "Frequently Asked Questions" in the world of charity: 1) How much do people give at any one time to different types of charitable recipients? and, 2) Do online and offline donations differ in size? The study also asked people why they give online or why they didn’t. By collecting information about gift amount—not total giving, as prior studies have done—this research demonstrates the importance of relatively small contributions. The results of this research are surprising and contradict some conventional wisdom about charitable giving.
