The Moderating Role of Numeracy in the Effectiveness of Cause-Related Marketing

Cause-related marketing is more effective when donations are provided in absolute amounts (vs. percentages). In two experiments, we examined whether this effect is moderated by individual differences in numeracy. The results showed that people with lower numeracy reveal this effect, whereas higher numerate individuals are unaffected by the presentation format.
