New approaches to research on philanthropy have deepened the understanding of giving behavior. They include the ascent of field experiments on fundraising where charities are perceived as active parties. Others include the influence of behavioral economics on our understanding of how social interactions affect donations. The channels through which people donate have recently changed as well. For example, the role of online activities like donation-based crowdfunding is increasing. The emergence of big data and machine learning enables identifying and targeting individual’s charitable tastes. There are still many open questions and finding answers to them requires new approaches. This workshop aims to bring together scholars in order to foster exchange on new methods in charitable giving research and strengthen the network between researchers in Europe and overseas.
