Who gives? A literature review of predictors of charitable giving. Part two: gender, marital status, income, and wealth

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

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.
