 Getting people to consider donation effectiveness has little/weak impact on giving. Karlan and Wood (2017): adding scientific impact ​ info (including some quantitative information;​ and removing emotional stimulus in part) had a small/​insignificant net effect: increased gifts from large prior donors, reduced gifts from small prior donors. Other work  (Small et al, '07, study 3) find that info decreases giving (to an identified victim)... by decreasing emotional response: (study 4): priming analytic thinking (vs feeling-based) reduced giving to identifiable victims. ​ (Perhaps attenuated by a commitment: Bergh, preliminary). Getting people to consider donation effectiveness has little/weak impact on giving.
