Southern Generosity has released a map showing the amount of charitable giving by state. It should come as no surprise that, as a region, Dixie has the highest rate of giving. Some outliers are Utah and Idaho, which have high numbers of Mormons with their enforced tithing requirement. There is also a very strong correlation between generosity and level of religious commitment – again, there is a reason that Dixie is also known as The Bible Belt.

There’s just something warm and friendly and giving about our Southern culture.
