This thesis is concerned with donations of time and money to charitable institutions in Britain. The Charities Aid Foundation annual Charity Household Survey is statistically analysed and profiles of individuals likely to donate money to charity, and those likely to donate at different levels, are produced. A model of direct and indirect influences on charity donations is developed and the implications of the results for fundraising managers discussed. These analyses are then repeated for volunteers. Those most likely to volunteer and those who are likely to give at higher levels are profiled. A model of both direct and indirect influences on volunteering is developed and again the implications of the results for charity managers are discussed. In addition to the statistical analyses, interviews with fundraising managers from large British charities were conducted. These provided an additional check of the validity of the original findings and indicated areas where further research would be desirable.
