Zion & Zion Study Reveals Significant Gender Gap in Consumers’ Brand Awareness of Largest US Charities

TEMPE, Ariz. (June 19, 2019) – New research from the market research team at Zion & Zion, a top-ranked, full-service, national marketing agency, reveals that female and male consumers have differences in their respective brand awareness of many well-known charities.

The findings of Zion & Zion’s research have implications for charities across the country with respect to how and to who they communicate:

  • Women edge out men for brand awareness of charities such as Save the Children (61% of women are aware of the charity vs. 45% of men), Feed the Children (64% of women vs. 49% of men), and March of Dimes (81% of women vs. 68% of men).
  • Men hold meaningful brand awareness leadership differentials with a number of charities: American Civil Liberties Union and Foundation (61% of men are aware of the charity vs. 43% of women), Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation (53% of men vs. 35% of women), and Doctors Without Borders (79% of men vs. 66% of women).
