Russians’ participation in cash donations: factors and level of involvement

As part of Russia’s transformation process of the last decade, the preconditions for the emergence of philanthropic institutions were created. A plethora of evidence illustrates how this process has unfolded. However, there is a limited amount of research devoted to the philanthropic activity of Russians. This deficit stems from a lack of empirical data on the subject. This article seeks to partly rectify this deficit of empirical information on the topic. We examine the level of involvement of Russians in making cash donations and reveal the factors that influence it. Empirical data were collected within the framework of the monitoring of Russia's civil society that has been conducted since 2006.
