The Giving Report 2010 - A Survey on the Philanthropy Practices of High Net Worth Individuals in South Africa

Jan 01, 2011
  • Description

The Giving Report 2010 focused on the giving behaviour of High Net Worth individuals with regard to the following: the amount of money donated, time and/or goods donated; volunteering patterns such as the influence of gender and income; the amount of years individuals have been involved in giving; their motivation for giving; and the frequency and scope of giving, such as, how many times per year donors give and the most prevalent sectors and/or projects to which they give.

  • Of those who did not give in 2010, about half felt nothing will change their opinions of giving in future.
  • Those whose source of wealth is investment success tend to give more.
  • Only 26% of the respondents have both a strategy and budget for giving.
  • Males were found to give higher amounts than females. To some extent this is due to males earning greater amounts than females.
