The Fraser Institute says based on their annual generosity index, Americans are donating more money than Canadians.
Looking purely at the income being donated, Americans give 2.5 times more than Canadians, which amounts to 1.39 percent of their income. However, this contradicts StatCan’s findings that Canadians are donating more in 2015 than in recent years. Many Canadians don’t keep tabs on their donations, which might account for the Fraser Institute’s findings.
Do you donate to charities? Do you think Canadians are becoming less generous over the years?
