Portland: Things Look Generous Here

Speaking of how much people want to help, I thought I’d share this cool stat with all of you.

Portland is #36 when it comes to the most generous cities online!

To give a little clarification, this is out of 273 of the nation’s large cities and is based on per capita giving during 2009.

The average gift is right around $60, creating a total of $2,687,397 coming from 44,313 donors.

But, as nice as number 36 is, should we — as a city with one of the highest rates of volunteerism (#2) — be aiming a little higher with our online charitable giving?

Next year, #25!
