Top states that participate in 'Giving Tuesday'

Posted: Updated:

MONTANA- A new study shows Montana does not rank in the top ten for states that participate in Giving Tuesday. 

The personal-finance website WalletHub  released its report on 2017’s Most Charitable States, 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 14 key indicators of charitable behavior. The data set ranges from volunteer rate to share of income donated to share of sheltered homeless.
