Charity: Who Cares?

I came across a link to a graphic entitled, Charity: Who Cares?, on MintLife.  Some of the statistics are very telling when it comes to human greed as well as our desire to help others.

Here are a few of the statistics and facts that I found interesting and telling:

  • Religious people give more (financially & with their time) to secular causes than secular people.
  • Those who earn less than $20,000 per year are twice as generous (by percentage of income) than those who earn more than $100,000.  The top reason given by the latter group as to why they don’t give more: They can’t afford it.
  • The wealthiest 10% of Americans contribute 25% of all charitable giving.
  • Conservatives are more charitable than liberals.
