Georgetown University Study Finds That Women Are More Likely Than Men to Believe in Supporting Charitable Causes

According to a study conducted by researchers at the Georgetown University Center for Social Impact Communication, American women are far more likely than American men to believe that they can make a difference by supporting charitable causes. The results found that 49 percent of women, compared to 41 percent of men, were very or somewhat involved in charitable causes.

The results showed that women were significantly more likely than men to agree with the following statements:

• I believe everyone can make a difference by supporting causes.

• Supporting a cause can give you a sense of purpose and meaning in your life.

• Supporting causes makes me feel good about myself.

• Supporting causes makes me feel like I am part of a community.

On the other hand, 43 percent of men agreed with the statement, “Supporting causes has become a fad.” Only 37 percent of women agreed.
