Abstract : A 2 (aid vs. no aid) x 2 (high vs. low resource potential donor) factorial design tested the effects of aid and donor resources on recipient self-perceptions and subsequent self-help behavior. The results were characterized by interactions between the two factors. The relationship between threat to self-esteem inherent in aid and subsequent self-help is discussed in terms of self-esteem theory. (Modified author abstract)
