Most Charitable States in America [INFOGRAPHIC]

Posted by Ian Lauth

Most_Charitable_States-01.png

Donating both time and money has long been an integral part of American society.  According to the World Giving Indexthe United States was the only country to rank in the top 10 in 2014 for each of the three categories they use to measure charitable behavior, including volunteering time, donating money, and helping strangers. 

The National Philanthropic Trust states that 95.4% of U.S. households donate to charities, with each household’s average annual donation a robust $2,974.  Total U.S. donations to charity amounted to $331 billion in 2013, with 72% of that coming from individual donations.

Below we look at charitable giving trends by state. The top five most charitable states are located in the middle of the country, with Utah ranking #1 overall and ranking near the top in just about every measurement of charitable giving.  Interestingly, other than the consistently strong showing of Utah, there is quite a bit of diversity in the states that ranked high in each metric below.
