Description The topic of philanthropy has been receiving attention internationally for several decades. Like other areas of non-profit studies, charitable giving and volunteering are attracting more and more attention from researchers in a wide variety of disciplines including economics. Even though philanthropy tends to be considered a sociological theme rather than an economic one, it poses a lot of questions that challenge economists too. Among others we chose those two: How can economists contribute to the theories related to philanthropy? Can we consider voluntary giving a demonstration of generosity rather than market-based solutions?
