Don't Take My Warm Glow: Unasked Prosocial Gifts Reduce Subsequent Donations

Our paper explores the downstream consequences of receiving prosocial gifts (i.e., charitable donations by gift-givers on recipients' behalf) on recipients' subsequent involvement with the organization. When the initial gift is unasked, recipients report lower donation intentions to the organization, an effect mediated by lowered agency perceptions and warm glow.
