Giving, Volunteering and Participating: Latest survey results from Statistics Canada

In late January, Statistics Canada released the results of its 2013 General Social Survey – Giving, Volunteering and Participating (GSS GVP). The bottom line: Giving and volunteering are up; total number of givers and volunteers are down. And the population of donors and volunteers is heavily influenced by adults aged 55+. In 2013, Canadians aged 55 and older accounted for 34% of the total giving population aged 15 and older. However, this group contributed 39% of all volunteer hours and 47% of all donated dollars.
