Study Ranks New Jersey As Just The 32nd Most Charitable State In US

New Jerseyans have some of the highest average incomes in the United States, but that doesn’t translate into more charitable giving, according to a new study from personal finance site WalletHub.

Researchers put together a ranking of every state’s charitableness based on 19 key indicators compiled from 2020 data. It found that Americans gave $485 billion to charity despite the Covid pandemic, and that some 78 million people volunteer about 5.8 billion hours per year, which comes out to $147 billion of service.

But New Jersey isn’t high on the list of states as far as how much charitable giving its residents are part of.

Out of a total possible score of 100, New Jersey got just a 55.05 grade, placing it at 32nd – in the lower half of states.

The most charitable states were, in order, Utah, Maryland, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Oregon. The very least charitable state was Arizona, followed by New Mexico, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Nevada just ahead of it.
