PayPal study reveals Irish giving trends

PayPal's Gifting and Giving 2021 study has revealed that 38% of Irish people report that their generosity has increased in relation to charitable causes since the pandemic started. A stunning 92% said that they donated to charity in some way.

The most generous givers are from Carlow (€178), Wicklow (€106), Sligo (€103), Meath (€102) and Wexford (€100), with the average countrywide being €87 a year.

Maeve Dorman, Senior Vice President at PayPal, commented: “It’s that magical time of the year when people want to give back to their loved ones and their communities. After all, being generous to others makes us feel good and – something that is ever more important these days – helps us stay connected. Irish people, in particular, are known for their generosity and thoughtfulness, so it’s not surprising that they are going above and beyond this year when it comes to buying gifts for family and friends and making donations to causes they care about.”
