ItemPatterns of Giving in COPPS 2001(11/17/2003) Steinberg, Richard; Wilhelm, MarkSerious researchers of philanthropy have bemoaned the lack of panel datasets for studying giving behavior. That gap is beginning to be filled with the start of the Center on Philanthropy Panel Study (COPPS). COPPS provides the first comprehensive panel study of giving and volunteering in the U.S., and one of the only such studies worldwide to date. Previous U.S. panels studies of giving have employed tax return data, which are limited to gifts of money and property by (in most years) itemizers and include only the financial and limited demographic data reported on those returns. ItemDistribution of Household Giving by Type of Recipient Organization in 2002(2006-03) Center on Philanthropy Panel Study (COPPS) 2003 WaveEvery culture depends on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations to provide essential elements of a civil society. Effective philanthropy and nonprofit management are instrumental in creating and maintaining public confidence in the philanthropic traditionsvoluntary association, voluntary giving, and voluntary action. The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University increases the understanding of philanthropy and improves its practice through programs in research, teaching, public service, and public affairs.

ItemKey Findings Center on Philanthropy Panel Study 2005 wave(2005) IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy ItemInheritance and Charitable Donations(12/30/2002) Steinberg, Richard; Wilhelm, Mark; Rooney, Patrick; Brown, EleanorIn this paper, we employ a unique new data set (the Philanthropy Panel Study (PPS), a module within the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID)) to test whether the propensity to donate out of inherited wealth is equal to the propensities to donate out of other wealth, earned income, and transfer payments. We find that the elasticity of giving from non-inherited wealth is much greater than from inherited wealth for total giving and gifts to religion, combined causes, people in need, health, education, and other causes. The effects of income derived from inherited wealth and labor income are similar in terms of elasticities, although inherited wealth creates a higher marginal propensity to donate. Transfer income has either a small or no apparent effect on donations.
