Americans May Spend More, Give Less this Season

Ad Feedback

This holiday season could mean bad news for charities, a recent a World Vision holiday giving survey suggests.

The survey found that Americans may spend more but give less in the current economic climate.

Last year 51 percent of U.S. adults said they'd be "more likely" to give a charitable gift as a present. This year the percentage dropped six points to 45 percent.

The study did find that Americans still prefer to receive meaningful gifts that help others rather than a traditional gift of clothing or electronics.
