Oklahoma is the ninth most charitable state in the nation, according to a recent WalletHub report.

Across America, 95.4 percent of households donate to community causes, according to financial social media company WalletHub. That’s an average of $2,974 a year.

The National Philanthropic Trust estimated that, in 2014, $338 billion was donated, 72 percent of which came from individuals.

Utah ranks No. 1 in both volunteering and donated income. Louisiana had the lowest volunteer rate, and New Hampshire donated the least amount of income. Oklahoma ranked No. 5 on the chart showing the highest percent of donated income, with almost four times more donated income than New Hampshire.

Yeah, that means we make less money, but we give more of what we do earn. Way to go, Oklahoma!
