We are a team of young international researchers studying the relationship between the political ideology, morality and charitable giving.
Recent work has argued that political ideology plays a key role in explaining charitable giving behavior, in particular, the differences between those who are generous and those who are not (Brooks 2006; Brooks and Lewis 2001; Derin-Gure and Uler 2010; Wolpert 1995). Empirical evidence points to self-identified political conservatives’ greater financial generosity when compared with liberals (Brooks 2006; Brooks and Lewis 2001). In our current work we are trying to see whether this difference in charitable behavior between liberals and conservatives is related to the difference in moral worldviews of these two groups. This way, we hope to learn more about the motivation for charitable and helping behavior.
If you sympathize with our goals and would like to support our cause, we would be very grateful if you could help us by completing our survey. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes (at the end, you will be able to see your own score on the 5 Big moral foundations and compare it with the average scores of other conservatives, as well as liberals).
