Do Entrance Fees Crowd Out Donations for Public Goods? Evidence from a Protected Area in Costa Rica
Francisco Alpízar, Peter Martinsson, Anna Nordén
RFF Discussion Paper EfD 14-10 | May 2014
RESEARCH TOPICS:
Abstract
In this paper, we investigate how different levels of entrance fees affect donations for a public good, a natural park. To explore this issue, we conducted a stated preference study focusing on visitors’ preferences for donating money to raise funds for a protected area in Costa Rica given different entrance fee levels. The results reveal that there is incomplete crowding-out of donations when establishing an entrance fee.
