2014’s Most & Least Charitable States – WalletHub Study

From WalletHub December 2, 2014

With 30 percent of annual giving taking place in December and the U.S. co-leading the world with Myanmar in charitable contributions this year, the leading personal finance social network WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2014’s Most & Least Charitable States.

In the spirit of inspiring more Americans to increase their charitable giving this holiday season, WalletHub shined the spotlight on the most generous of the 50 states. We did so by analyzing eight key metrics such as volunteer rate, the percentage of taxpayers who donated to charity and growth in charitable giving.

Hawaii is 30th most charitable but is tied for 5th in “percentage of population who claim to have donated time”.

  Most Charitable States   Least Charitable States
  1 Utah   41 California
  2 South Dakota   42 Florida
  T-3 Idaho   43 Rhode Island
  T-3 Kansas   44 Arkansas
  5 Nebraska   45 Louisiana
  6 Minnesota   46 Arizona
  7 Montana   47 New Jersey
  8 Washington   48 Kentucky
  9 Oregon   49 West Virginia
  10 Maryland   50 Nevada

Key Stats

  • The volunteer rate is two times higher in Utah than in Louisiana.
  • The percentage of donated income is four times higher in Utah than in New Hampshire.
  • The percentage of the population who claim to have donated time is two times higher in Utah than in Kentucky.
  • The percentage of taxpayers who donated money to charity is three times higher in Maryland than in West Virginia.
