Penny For Your Preferences: Leveraging Self-Expression to Increase Prosocial Giving

We examine an identity-based prosocial appeal that is growing in popularity, dueling preferences, where the act of giving is framed as a “duel” between two identity-relevant categories. Four laboratory and field studies reveal that “duels” provide a greater opportunity for potential givers to express themselves, which increases prosocial giving.
