Abstract It is commonly believed that individuals would donate more to charity if they were assured that the funds would not be 'wasted.' This is a common answer to survey type investigations into charitable giving. In this paper we adopt a law and finance approach to investigate the validity of this contention in the Australian context. We develop an Accountability Rights variable and relate that variable to charitable donations. The relationship between the two is statistically weak and not robust.
