Every month, CharityInsight, in partnership with The iD Factor, conducts exclusive research into

Men and women alike list sympathy for the cause as the main reason they give, according to the latest giving trends research, exclusive to CharityInsight. Other popular reasons for donating include, simply, "I was asked" and "I have a connection to the cause".
