    Detail

    This paper, published by the Behavioural Insights Team in the Cabinet Office in partnership with the Charities Aid Foundation, shows how insights from the behavioural sciences can help charities to increase donations.

    As well as setting out key insights from the academic literature, the paper reveals the results from 5 randomised controlled trials conducted with a range of large organisations that show how charitable donations have been increased in practice.
