One in five people are paying members of a charity, survey says

More than a fifth of British adults are paying members of a charity, according to a new report by nfpResearch. Membership and the Charity Sector shows that paid membership of charities has remained consistent over the past decade, dipping from around 24% in 2008 to 23% last year. Charity membership schemes seem to have fared better that other organisation such as sporting clubs, special interest groups and professional associations, which have all been declining in recent years.
