About Episode 3 of The Ask
Evidence based, solution focused, impact driven, system changing… rooted in relationships that foster connection, community, engagement and the freedom of choice. These words and phrases characterize the millennial generation’s approach to charity and doing good. In episode 3 of this four-part series on the Rideau Hall Foundation’s Giving Behaviour Project, we shine a light on millennials. Featuring conversations with Sarah Roberton, Vice President Corporate and Public Affairs at Environics Research, Scott Haldane, President & CEO of the Rideau Hall Foundation and Mitchell Kutney, co-founder and Chair of Just Change Ottawa, we explore the motivations, attitudes and behaviour of millennials when it comes to giving as well as what charities should do to connect with this generation.
3. How “nudging” can increase giving behaviour
To explore how behavioural science can be applied to the act of giving, the Rideau Hall Foundation partnered with Behaviourial Insights Team (BIT), the MS Society of Canada and Canada’s Privy Council Office on a series of trials to contribute to a deeper understanding of how giving can be more strongly encouraged.
