Here Are The 10 Most Generous, Giving Towns In Texas
According to a study by Philanthropy.com, Texas ranks as the 12th most giving state overall, according to how much it gave to charity in 2012. Residents of Texas gave 3.59% of their income to charity, which equates to a whopping $15,897,192,000 in total. Everyone knows Texans have a big heart, so this might come as no surprise.
However, have you ever wondered which towns in Texas give the most to charity? We used the same website and broke the data down by metropolitan statistical areas to determine which cities and towns have the biggest hearts (and maybe wallets) of all.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
