Tax or beg? Mandatory payments to charity and their effects on donor behaviour

Charitable organisations derive income from various sources - directly through voluntary donations provided by individual people, and indirectly through funds provided by the state. It is perhaps natural to wonder why the state is required to finance these organisations when it is individual people who vote for government in the first place and pay for its spending via their taxes.

The purpose of this study is to ask whether such mandatory payments to charity would lead to higher contributions than a system of purely voluntary donations.

To practise what we preach: an exploratory survey of values in charities

With many charities relying increasingly on volunteers to maintain their level and quality of service to their beneficiaries, more work is needed to make volunteers feel involved in shaping the values of the organisations they work for.

These are some of the findings of an exploratory survey into the use of organisational values within UK based charities, carried out by the Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School. The report, entitled "To practise what we preach- a survey of values within charities", looks at whether values are used effectively by charities and whether organisations involve staff, beneficiaries and volunteers in drafting them.
