This Paper examines how the interactions between minority and majority groups affect the willingness of the latter to give to international charity, using Canadian data. By minority group I mean all individuals living in Canada who have non-white ethnic background (Chinese, Africans etc.) and the reverse is true for the majority group. I find that on averages a 10% increase in the population of minorities reduces the predicted probability by 14-17%. Statistically, the estimate is mostly significant but the economic impact is very minimal.
