Covid: the French particularly generous towards associations


The French have been “sensitive” to the health “emergency” and have massively helped associations specializing in medical research or fighting against poverty, according to France Générosités. In the first half of 2020, donations increased by 22% compared to the first half of 2019, reports the union barometer.

The Secours populaire is one of the associations that have benefited from the increase in occasional donations from the French to associations.

Faced with the health crisis due to the Covid, which has severely affected hospitals and accentuated economic inequalities in France, the French have been quick to make a gesture. Donations to associations have never been as important as in the first half of this year, according to the “Barometer of generosity” unveiled on Tuesday.

Donations to associations and foundations increased by 22% compared to the first half of 2019, according to this barometer, carried out by the France Générosités union among a panel of 44 member associations and foundations. “The French were sensitive to this emergency situation. They were particularly supportive and generous, ”noted the union in a press release.
