Nearly 3 out of 4 Millennials Have Donated Money During the Pandemic

Nearly 3 out of 4 millennials (defined here as those ages 25 to 34) have sent some kind of financial aid to family or friends or donated to a nonprofit since the Covid-19 pandemic began, according to payment app Zelle’s September Consumer Payment Behaviors report. The report is based on a survey of over 600 interviews a month of adults ages 18 to 72.

That’s the highest rate among any of the generations polled. Gen Z (ages 18 to 24) had the second highest giving rate at 66%, followed by Gen X (ages 35 to 54) and baby boomers (ages 55 to 72).
