Kids Give

"How can I raise my children to be charitable?”

It’s a question parents of all backgrounds often ask. As adults, men and women exhibit different motivations for giving, different patterns of giving, and differences in the likelihood and amount of their giving. Charitable behavior, though, is learned much earlier in life and little is known – until now – about the giving habits of girls and boys and how they learn to become charitable adults.

The United Nations Foundation partnered with the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy to investigate how young people give to charity and the two ways in which parents can teach children about charitable giving: talking about giving and role-modeling giving.

In this report, we investigate ways in which parents teach children about giving and whether girls and boys respond differently to those approaches. We also examine whether differences exist by age, income, and race.
