It’s the season of giving and a new study from Wallet Hub highlights which states are the most – and the least – generous.

Wallet Hub found 95.4 percent of households donate to charities, giving an average of $2,974 per year. 

Researchers analyzed eight points, including volunteer rate, the percentage of the population who donated time and money and the median contribution to charity, to make the list of rankings.

This year’s most generous state overall is found out West. Utah led the pack by a nine-point margin.

Tennessee landed comfortably in the Top 10 at No. 6, with Georgia right behind at No. 7.

2015’s least generous state? Rhode Island.

You can read the full list at Wallet Hub and see how the states break down in other categories, such as volunteer rate, percentage of donated income, percentage of population who claim to have donated time, percentage of population who claim to have donated money, growth in charitable giving (2012 vs. 2006) and number of charities per capita.
