The US Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), has released a study of the charitable giving habits of wealthy, high-tech executives. AFP claims that The High Tech Donor Study is “the first qualitative, interview-intensive report providing in-depth analysis of how high-tech philanthropists view their giving and the long-range implications of their involvement in the non-profit sector.”

Despite current poor economic circumstances, all respondents indicated that they intend to be involved with charity now and throughout their lives. Nearly all stated that they are still learning how to give and how to establish their own philanthropic identity.
