The States Where People Are The Most Generous

Looking for volunteers for a good cause? You’re most likely to have success if you head to Utah.

That’s according to a new survey from Gallup, which breaks down by state where Americans donate the most time and money to charity.

Relatively low population states such as South Dakota, Vermont, Montana, and Idaho topped a list of survey respondents who reported giving a donation and volunteering their time to an organization within the last six months. At 48%, the state of Utah, where about two-thirds of the population is Mormon, contained the highest percentage of people who did both. Across the board, as has been found in past studies, people there were more likely to donate money than give their precious free time to a cause.

Coming in at the bottom of the list were many southern and southwestern states, joined by New York, where only 26% of people gave both time and money recently (with 65% giving a donation and 36% volunteering).
