Gone With the Wind
Can Education Level and Race Predict Charitable Donations in
the Event of a Natural Disaster?
Introduction
Introduction
o Natural disasters are unexpected,
unpreventable events. Afterwards,
people donate to relief efforts in order
to assist those affected.

Methods

Discussion

o Data collected from over 600 participants.
o Participants were asked how much they
would donate to relief efforts after
winning $100 dollars on a lottery.

o What factors may influence this?
o Higher education positively correlates
with amount donated; however, more
negative when it comes to humanitarian
aid (Bekkers & Wiepking, 2011).

o Could be due to many factors such as
Just World Theory, or other individual
trait variations in participants.

Results
Results
Education, race, and their interaction did
not reach significance.

o Race also affects donations, with
implicit racial biases emerging
depending on the race of those affected
by a natural disaster (Stepanikova,
Triplett, & Simpson, 2011).

o Our hypothesis was not supported,
suggesting that education level and race
may not be accurate predictors of
charitable donations.

o Future research should attempt to
underpin if education level and race
result in differences in donations due to
other confounding variables such as
individual beliefs, geographic location
and proximity of events, and the
importance of religiosity/prosociality in
participants culture.
