Relationship between beliefs about recipient's
circumstances and donations

% of possible winnings donated

Introduction
• In the aftermath tragic events such as natural
disasters, those most affected rely heavily on
charitable intervention
• It is therefore important to understand what
motivates charitable giving to best target those
most likely to donate
• Both personal demographics and beliefs are likely
to effect this
• The empathic concern associated with being
female has been linked to more charitable
behaviours (Willer, Wimer, & Owens, 2015)
• Personal knowledge and/or contact with those
who receive from charity has also been shown to
boost sympathy and lead to more donations (Small
& Simonsohn, 2008)
• Sympathy is also increases when it is believed that
a victim is not responsible for their misfortune
(Zagefka, Noor, Brown, Randsley de Moura &
Hopthrow, 2011)

control

A weak positive correlation between beliefs and donations
• rs (515) = .135, p <.005 .
Discussion
• The only significant result came from the correlation
analysis, however it was weak
• The results suggest that charities should highlight
that their recipients are not responsible for their
circumstances if they wish to increase donations
• Future research may benefit from looking more into
the association between beliefs about victims and
charitable donations
