What are the most common trends when giving to charities?

We give to charities in many different ways, from giving loose change to donation boxes and buckets, donating online and by setting up monthly direct debits. The trends vary from giving to the homeless, children charities or to international non-governmental organisations. However not all charitable giving is only to charities. Simple donations are also made by individuals or collectively as families and the donors could be children, teenagers or adults.

The amounts we donate vary from small one off amounts to large high level donors and according to recent statistics older women are more likely to donate than older men. Donations also vary according to the different occupation groups, for example those working in managerial and professional occupation groups were the most likely to give (70%) and gave larger amounts on average. Below is a graph of recent research.
