A Generational Gap: Giving to Charity
The young, the middle-aged and the old have differing views of where dollars and goods should go.
Notable is the lack of information on giving to religious organizations. It has shown up in other charitable / philanthropic reports but is missing here.
I also wonder if the younger generation’s attitudes and interests will change over time. In particular, will the sector focus of their philanthropic involvement and funding shift over time? Again, are people more religious as they age and thus more involved in supporting a faith community? Are older people more aware of medical / health issues and thus more inclined to fund research?
What do you think . . . .?
