This paper aimed to verify the current status of adolescents' donations and predictors influencing their donation behaviors. First, the result revealed that adolescents' donations were higher in the order of time, material, and talent donation. Second, donation motives, attitude towards donation, self-esteem, a sense of community, and trust in charitable organization were positively correlated. Third, the predictors of material donation behaviors of adolescents were gender, age, extrinsic motives, attitude towards donation, sense of community, and trust in charitable organization. And the predictors of time donation behaviors were gender and sense of community, and those of talent donation were age, intrinsic motives and sense of community. The strategies for the activation of adolescents' donations were suggested.

이 논문은 중고대학생 1,230명을 대상으로 기부실태와 기부유형별 기부경험 유무에 영향을 미치는 예측변인을 규명하고자 하였다. 연구결과 청소년들은 시간기부, 물질기부, 재능기부 순으로 많이 하는 것으로 나타났다. 둘째, 청소년의 기부 관련 변인들 즉 기부동기, 기부태도, 자아존중감, 공동체 의식 및 기부기관 신뢰는 정적 상관관계를 보였다. 셋째, 청소년 물질기부 경험 유무의 예측변인은 성별, 연령, 기부 외적 동기, 기부태도, 공동체 의식 및 기부기관 신뢰로 나타났다. 그리고 시간기부 경험 유무의 예측변인은 성별과 공동체 의식이었으며, 재능기부 경험 유무 예측변인은 연령, 기부 내적동기 및 공동체 의식으로 나타나 기부유형별 기부경험 유무에 영향을 미치는 예측변인이 다르게 나타났다. 이러한 결과를 토대로 청소년 기부활성화를 위한 방안을 모색하였다.
