What percentage of your income do you donate to charity?

Just wondering how much most people give to charity, not in absolute terms, but as a proportion of their total household income....

Why do you want to know?

That’s a private matter, not something to brag about.

A journalist looking for charitable donation patterns among the retired?

How much do you spend at Christmas ?
How much do you give your adult children?
How much do you give to charity?
Is nothing to be kept in the family and one’s own business?

Maybe so Maw; and in that case, I feel duty bound to skew their figures and so will offer that I donate 100% of my nett income.

Strange question! Whilst the OP may be just curious I would caution GNs that asking seemingly innocuous questions is the way scammers get information.
