CAF 2014 Annual Giving Survey

Report
June 2015
CAF

CAF have released the results of their 2014 Annual Giving Survey. The report brings together the results of over 5000 face to face interviews conducted between April and October 2014. Some of the report's key findings are:

  • Just under half (48%) of British men fail to support good causes or get involved in social action in a typical month, say figures released today by the Charities Aid Foundation.
  • Younger people are also less likely to be involved with supporting good causes, nearly three fifths (58%) of those aged 16 – 24 doing none of the charitable or social actions listed in a typical month. Those aged 45-64 are the most likely to be involved, 63% having done something for a good cause in the previous month.
  • The report estimates that Britons donated £10.6bn to charity in 2014.
  • There has been a rise in the proportion of people giving money to overseas causes over the past year, possibly due to high-profile appeals such as the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ebola campaign. A higher proportion of donors also report giving to animal charities in 2014.
