Utah Is 2018’s 2nd Most Charitable State – WalletHub Study

With a third of all annual giving taking place in December and the U.S. ranking No. 4 overall in the 2018 World Giving Index, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Most Charitable States as well as accompanying videos, along with its Charity Calculator to help donors decide whether to give time or money for maximum philanthropic impact.

To determine where the most generous Americans are inspiring others to be more selfless, WalletHub compared the 50 states based on 18 key indicators of charitable behavior. The data set ranges from volunteer rate to share of income donated to share of sheltered homeless.
