These donors are most likely to support the causes of children and youth (15%), health and wellness (11%), and animals and wildlife (11%).
Global: 54% of donors worldwide prefer to give online with a credit or debit card and 9% through PayPal. Donors are much less likely to give through mobile apps/wallets (4%) and through text message (1%).
