Благотворительность пожилых россиян (по результатам эмпирического исследования)

The article discusses participation of older Russians (over 60) in charitable activities in Russia, wherein they participate not only as recipients but also as producers of philanthropic activities. Based on the data from the national survey representative of the Russian population conducted in 2014 (N=2000) we provide characteristics of older persons' participation in the most common philanthropic practice in Russia, which is monetary donations. We provide an overview of the scale of donations, most common forms and preferred causes, as well as explore the factors determining donors' activities: social, demographic and economic characteristics, religious identity and behavior, value orientations and beliefs related to interpersonal trust and readiness to join a collective effort and help others.
