Do Race and Education Affect

§ African-Americans and Hispanics have been
shown to make the smallest donations to
charities (Steinberg & Wilhelm, 2005).
§ While Whites have been shown to make the
highest donations most frequently (Steinberg &
■ Data was extracted from Fong and Luttmer
(2009) who investigated effects of racial group
loyalty on generosity.
1,343 US respondents of different ethnicities.
(Wu, Huang & Kao, 2004).
§ Similarly, years of education and amount donated have been shown
to positively correlate with each other (Tiehen,2001).
§ Taking previous literature into account, it is hypothesised that:
① White, non-hispanic individuals will donate more compared to any
other race. Moreover, those with a degree will donate more
compared to other education levels.
Chart 1. Mean donation given by race.
§ A significant effect was found
between race and donation.
§ Race and education have both been found to
influence the likelihood of donating to charity.
§ No effect of education on donating has
been found, but the amount donated has been
shown to be impacted by education level
§ Post hoc tests showed a
significant effect between
White, non-hispanic and
Black, non-hispanic only.
Participants asked to divide $100 between
themselves and Hurricane Katrina victims.

participants data were analysed.
■ A 2 way between subjects ANOVA conducted.

§ No interaction was found
between race and education.
Findings of the study suggest:
① Generosity is affected by race but only when comparing between
White and Black non-hispanics.
② Education, at any level, does not affect the amount donated.
③ Future research should aim to investigate the effects of race and
education on the frequency of donations also.
④ Previous literature implies that duration of years in education
leads to an increase in donation frequency.
