Multicultural Study 2003: Time and Money: An In-Depth Look at 45+ Volunteers and Donors

How many age 45+ people who volunteer their time or make charitable donations are not being counted – and thus having their contributions overlooked – by methods traditionally employed for identifying such activities?

This AARP survey represents a comprehensive assessment of the extent of the community service and charitable giving practices of the age 45+ population. It identified actual behavior among respondents that may be considered to have community impact, but might not be captured by traditional volunteering and giving survey questions. By looking into not only how people volunteer and donate within charitable, non-profit organizations, but also what they do on their own and in their communities for relatives and others, the survey found that most people aged 45 and over take on various roles as volunteers and contributors.

Telephone interviews with 2,069 age 45+ Americans, including representative samples of African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans, were conducted between July 2 and 30, 2003. The report was prepared by Gail Kutner and Jeffrey Love, both of AARP Knowledge Management, with the assistance of Belden, Russonello and Stewart. For more information, please, contact Gail Kutner at 202/434-6325.
