Here Are The 8 Most Generous, Giving Counties In Minnesota

At the end of 2014, Forbes ranked Minnesota the 6th most charitable state, and Charity Navigator ranked Minneapolis/St. Paul the 4th most giving metropolitan market. But it’s really some of MN’s smaller counties where charity has shown to be a true priority. These 8 counties give a higher percentage of their income to charity than any others in MN,and many in the rest of the nation as well.

The western half of the state is doing an amazing job of donating, and as national statistics prove, the entire state of MN is consistently charitable as well. Did your county make the list? What are your favorite charities to give to?
