Results for - Charitable donations dwindling amid COVID-19: survey
3,185 voters participated in this survey
A new survey says the effect the COVID-19 pandemic is having on charities is dire.
The survey, conducted by the Angus Reid Insititute, shows that nearly 40 per cent of Canadians who have donated to at least one charity in the past two years say they’re giving less since March, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
1. Do you typically donate to charities?
2. If yes, have you donated to a charity since March?
3. The survey found there is a majority feeling the federal government needs to help with policies such as donation matching, or direct grants to fill up shortfalls, which might encourage people to donate once again. Do you agree with this?
4. Virtually all the typical charitable fundraising events have been cancelled this year, and even after going online in many cases, the effect has not been the same in terms of inspiring people to donate. Have you attended any online/virtual charity events?
