Which professions give the most to charity?

A survey conducted by CharityCheckout.co.uk revealed that lawyers are the most generous, whilst those working in teaching, construction and the unemployed give the least.

{{The Charity Checkout survey found that those working in teaching and the construction industry gave to charity no more often than the unemployed.}}

This report comes as recent figures suggest a drop in donations to charity from last year. In 2011 the proportion of individuals who gave to charity in the average month was 58%, whilst this year that figure was expected to drop by around 6%.

Chester Mojay-Sinclare, CEO of CharityCheckout.co.uk, said, “We were pleasantly surprised by the generosity of the individuals we surveyed online. 60% had given to charity in the last month, a few percent more than we had expected. This is good news for the sector.”

Mojay-Sinclare went on to say that over the last three months, the average donation via the CharityCheckout.co.uk website was £59.50, around double the average donation in the UK.

He said, “There has been a huge increase in online giving over recent years. This explains the positive outlook. These days people from all professions are giving online.”
