In Online Giving, Some Cities Are More Generous

If you're looking to raise money for your campaign or cause, it's not only about who you ask but where they live. Blackbaud recently rated the most generous U.S. cities in terms of online charitable giving in 2012. The top four cities remained unchanged from the prior year. The top spot went to Seattle, WA, followed by Alexandria, VA; Washington., D.C.; and Minneapolis, MN. The Blackbaud analysis ranks 265 cities with populations of more than 100,000 based on per capita online giving. In 2012, more than $509 million was donated online in the 265 cities, 15% higher than in 2011. Regionally, the South dominated with nine out of the top 25 large cities, followed by the West (eight cities), Midwest (five cities) and Northeast (three cities).
