The places with the highest percent of givers
Which cities give the most? Market consumer research firm Scarborough Research released a study this week offering an answer to that question, at least in the United States.
Overall, more than half (56 percent) of adult Americans live in a household that donated money to a charity of some kind (arts groups count, as do healthcare institutions). Unsurprisingly, rates of giving correlate with income, and givers were 24 percent more likely to have graduated from college.
