Patterns of Charitable Giving Among British Jews

By Barry A. Kosmin, Jacqueline Goldberg

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), 1998

This report documents for the first time the giving patterns of British Jews and their support for a wide range of both Jewish and other charities. The findings show clearly that individuals do not give charity indiscriminately, but that a number of factors including religious outlook, group identification, income and age are involved in the choice of particular causes. The report establishes an especially strong relationship between religious outlook and giving patterns. It is therefore likely that, in the long run, any further secularization of the Jewish community will have a negative effect on donations to both Jewish and other charities.
