Poll: Has the CRC scandal affected how you give to charity?

Has the scandal made you think twice about donating – or where you donate to?
Dec 12th 2013, 9:31 AM 16,128 115

A NUMBER OF reports from Central Remedial Clinic volunteers this morning have indicated that people are slow to support the organisation’s annual Santa bear appeal.

And earlier this week, another charity Bóthar revealed its staff had received hate mail in the wake of the revelations at the CRC. It also noted that donations had fallen.

Speaking this morning, PAC chairman John McGuinness urged the public to continue supporting vital charities, promising that reform in the sector is imminent.

Today, we’re asking: Has the CRC top-up scandal affected how you give to charity?


Poll Results:

Yes, I am more discerning about where I donate to (2334)
No (1714)
Yes, I have stopped donations (1018)
I never donated to charities (515)
