An annual list of the most and least generous states in America hit the web for Giving Tuesday yesterday. The researchers looked at things like how many people volunteer, and how much the average person donates each year.
And once again, UTAH took the top spot. It was also #1 last year.
The top 10 for 2017 are Utah, Maryland, Minnesota, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Washington, Virginia, South Dakota, Georgia, and Oklahoma.
The 10 LEAST generous states overall are Hawaii, Rhode Island, Nevada, Louisiana, Arizona, Texas, Florida, California, Montana, and Kentucky.
Utah, Illinois, and New Hampshire tied for the highest percentage of residents who donated to at least one charity.
Utah also had the highest volunteer rate, and tied Georgia and Wyoming for donating the largest percentage of their income.
Researchers also looked at how generous RED states were versus BLUE states. And the good news is no one has to argue about it . . . because it’s a TIE. States that voted for Hillary were equally as generous as states that voted for President Trump.
