2019’s Most Charitable States & 2020’s Best Charities


News Release - December 3, 2019

UNDATED - With the U.S. ranked as the most generous country over the past 10 years by the World Giving Index, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019’s Most Charitable States (with accompanying videos), in addition to its picks for 2020’s Best Charities and a Charity Calculator to help donors decide where and how to give.

To determine where the most generous Americans are inspiring others to be more selfless, WalletHub compared the 50 states based on 19 key indicators of charitable behavior. The data set ranges from volunteer rate to share of income donated to share of sheltered homeless.

South Dakota didn't fare so well. It  came in 35th overall. The state did best for volunteering and service where it was 16th, but ranked poorly for charitable giving, where it ranked 46th.

Here is a rundown on the top 20:
