When Do Gifts Help Charitable Giving and When Do They Hurt?

The present studies examine the conditions under which incentives, like gifts, are likely to either increase or decrease charitable giving. Results indicate that when an offer is framed as an altruistic donation, gifts decrease charitable giving, while when the same offer is framed as a “purchase,” gifts increase charitable giving.
