‘Tis the season for giving. It’s almost as if our hearts become a little larger this time of year.

Maybe it’s because of the time we spend counting our blessings and reflecting on what we’re thankful for that encourages us to spread joy, give to those we love and share what we have with those less fortunate.

According to the World giving Index, Americans are among the world’s most generous people, ranking 5th out of 140 countries.

Charitable giving is something Utahns are especially good at.

A new report from WalletHub finds Utah to be the most charitable state in the nation.

Utah ranked number one in highest volunteer rate, highest percentage of people who donate time, and tied for first for highest percentage of donated income and highest percent of population who donate money.

If you’re still looking for ways to give back this holiday season, we’ve got a list of organizations on our website that could use some extra holiday cheer.
