According to new research from the Better Business Bureau’s Give.org, a large number of people surveyed have stopped donating to charities.
The report collected data from more than 2,100 adults in the United States and over 1,000 adults in Canada.
It found that people who make a household income of $70,000 or less thought that wealthier residents should be giving more money to charities.
Wes Lafortune, the manager of communications and media with the southern Alberta BBB, detailed a few of the key findings within the report.
“People are having a hard time, you know, financially, and so they’re being careful with their money. And and that, I think, contributes to where they’re supporting and perhaps being reticent to support charities. And another key point is that folks are looking for diversity from charities, transparency. So is there people from diverse backgrounds on the boards and working for the charities and so on?”
