Causa Sui (Cause of Itself): How Self-Benefit Appeal Framing Interacts With Situational and Dispositional As Donation Cause-Types

Research provides insight on charitable giving by testing the interaction between donation cause-types (situational vs. dispositional) and self-benefit appeals (‘karma’ - intentional but dependent, ‘feel-good’ - intentional and independent, ‘humanity’ - unintentional). Results show ‘karma’ appeal elicits higher donations for situational causes, with ‘feel-good’ and ‘humanity’ appeals benefiting dispositional causes.
