17% of French people have raised money for poor countries

Published 20 August 2018 in Surveys

16% of French people have already raised money for poor countries. However this is compared to 35% of French people who have made a donation upon request. Generosity, then, comes more from an external ask rather than spontaneous personal action.

Giving money to poor countries is most common for those aged between 18 and 24, both left- and right-leaning voters.

This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and Birmingham University as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
