MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — On Giving Tuesday, a day where giving to charity is encouraged, Minnesota as a state has been recognized as the most charitable in the nation.

That’s according to the personal-finance website Wallethub, which released its report on 2018’s Most Charitable States Tuesday.

According to Wallethub, Minnesota tops all other states in the nation based on 18 key indicators of charitable behavior. Those include volunteer rate, share of income donated and share of sheltered homeless.

Following Minnesota’s wake are Utah, New York and Maryland.
