CGAP Working Paper - The relationship between volunteering and charitable giving: review of evidence

This short report provides a synthesis of research findings into the relationship between volunteering and charitable giving. It resulted from initial ideas and discussions between the Institute of Volunteering Research, the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy (CGAP) at Cass Business School, NCVO and the Institute of Fundraising, and was funded by CGAP. The report focuses on the weight of evidence around the research questions and gives only a very brief review of the key findings.

The review of evidence aimed to answer three key research questions:

  • What is the nature of the relationship between volunteering and charitable giving?
  • What are the shared and different drivers of volunteering and charitable giving?
  • What are the different forms of activities that combine some element of both volunteering and charitable giving?
