Kars 4 Kids, American Cancer Society: Who is Most Generous To Various Charities?


Tzedekah is a very important pillar of Judaism — people are encouraged and required under the tenets of Judaism to give charity.: : So whether its donating a car to: Kars 4 Kids: or the American Red Cross who gives the most donations:

  • Generally, Republicans give more than twice what Democrats give in charitable contributions of all sorts.: : In 2008 a book was written which showed that while Democrats have higher household incomes, Republicans tend to donate more monies.
  • The Chronicle of Philanthropy: had a survey which shows that religious people of all sorts tithe due to their religious beliefs — and then thereafter donation trends change.

o: : : The most generous state in the country is Utah — where households in Provo, Utah, give away the most as a percentage – 13.9% of discretionary income.: : In second-place amongst states is Mississippi at 7.2%. Of course, Mormans “headquarters” is in Utah — and like Mitt Romney they tend to give generously to the Morman Church.

o: : : The others in the top five aren’t Morman heavy states — but are heavy evangelical places -: Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina.

One wonders indeed which party is the true kinder gentler party.: : Giving is good for you.

Ronn Torossian is CEO of: 5WPR.
