Пожилые россияне и благотворительность: определяющие факторы и масштабы участия

The article discusses participation of older people in philanthropic activities, in which they play the role of both recipients and givers. In the article we analyze major options and characteristics of charitable activities of older people with the focus on such common forms of philanthropy as monetary donations and volunteering. Further we explore the scales of charitable participation of older persons, forms of their engagement and preferred causes. One of the major conclusions is that currently the active role of older persons in charities is underestimated: their engagement is much higher than it has been viewed traditionally.
