Influence of Hedonic Versus Utilitarian Framing on Donation Behavior

The current research shows that sacrifice associated with donations is an important motivator of donation behavior. This article examines how reference to unrelated food in the "giving-up" donation appeal (e.g., Donate $2. Note, $2 is the same as giving up Blueberry Muffins) affects consumers’ willingness to donate and donation rates.
