Abstract: 
A common finding of the literature on dishonesty is that groups are more dishonest than individuals. We revisit this finding by making explicit the third-party harmed by subjects' dishonesty: a local charity. With this explicit third-party, we do not find groups to be more dishonest than individuals. Instead,we find that groups can even help moderate the extent of dishonesty.
