Who gives? A literature review of predictors of charitable giving. Part Two: Gender, family composition and income
Bekkers, René; Wiepking, Pamala (2012)


This is the second of two articles in which we present a comprehensive review of the multidisciplinary academic literature on philanthropy. In this article, we identify the following predictors of charitable giving by individuals and/or households: gender, family composition and income.
For each predictor, we discuss the evidence for the mechanisms that may explain why the predictor is correlated with giving. We conclude with a brief agenda for future research.
