Most Are Ready To Aid Coronavirus Charities

Most Americans say they’re likely to help financially those most hurt by the coronavirus, even though they’re very worried that their charitable giving will be ripped off instead.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults say they are likely to contribute to a charity for those hardest hit by COVID-19. This includes 28% who are Very Likely to do so. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
