What causes do people care most about in the U.S.? And what are Americans spending the most charitable dollars supporting? A new analytics company is using mapping technology to find out.
In terms of the sheer number of organizations tackling the problem, the West Coast is a hub for nonprofits interested in youth character development, organizations that offer a safe space for kids to spend time and activities that improve their body, mind, and value systems. In California and Washington, for instance, there are more groups tackling that issue than any other, even pressing local issues like hunger or affordable housing.
But take into account the average funding per organization and the real hub for that slice of the nonprofit sector might be the Midwest. It’s there – in places like Idaho, Nebraska, and Oklahoma – that groups receive the most money to do their work.
