Alliance Magazine has a summary of this UK article on Who Gives for Overseas Development? at http://www.alliancemagazine.org/online/html/aodec07d.html This article may be of interest to professional fundraisers who work on international development and humanitarian aid.  It may or may not be useful to understanding Canadian donors.  For the rest of us it appears that a large number of people give to overseas causes - but those who are better educated, women, and better off financially tend to give more.
