The aim of the CAF World Giving Index is to provide insight into the scope and nature of giving around the world.
In order to ensure that giving is understood in its various forms, the report looks at three aspects of giving behaviour.
The questions that lie at the heart of the report are:
- Have you done any of the following in the past month?
- Helped a stranger, or someone you didn’t know who needed help?
- Donated money to a charity? Volunteered your time to an organisation? Fieldwork is conducted by the market research firm, Gallup, as part of its World Poll initiative
