According to NerdWallet, the USA is the fifth most generous country in the world. The table above lists the top 10 cities in the United States scored for the most generous places. Rankings were based on the following metrics:

  1. Volunteer rates: the percentage of residents in the city that volunteered in the past year
  2. Volunteer hours: the hours a resident volunteered per year
  3. Percentage of median income donated: this was calculated by analyzing the median contribution and the median discretionary income

All data was obtained from the Corporation for National & Community Service and the Chronicle of Philanthropy. 366 places were analyzed.
