Brexit has had no effect on donations to charity in UK according to CAF study.

Charitable donations according to the Charities Aid Foundation’s annual UK Giving report found that charitable donations held steady at £9.7bn last year. Apparently the EU referendum had no influence on people’s reported giving.

CAF’s survey of 8,000 found 89 per cent did something charitable last year, up from 79 per cent in 2015. Sixty-one per cent of respondents had donated money, 56 per cent had given goods to charity, and 17 per cent had volunteered.

The median average contribution for a charitable donation or sponsorship was £18. Cash was the most common way for people to give, with 58 per cent of people having donated in this way. Over a quarter of respondents gave online.

Animal welfare charities attracted support from 25 per cent of respondents, and children and young people’s charities were supported by 24 per cent. Medical research was the most popular cause, with 26 per cent of people having given to these charities last year.
