Among those whose workplace allocates funds for Christmas activities, 20% report being strongly in favour some of the contribution or funding being donated to a charity of their choice instead and 30% report being somewhat in favour.
Of those participants who are in favour of some of the contribution/funds being used for charity, 60% reported that the proportion should be a half or more of the total currently spent. Among those in favour of some being used for charity, 31% reported that the total amount that should be used for charity should be all of it/almost all of it or about three quarters, and 29% reported that it should be about half of it.
