New Study Says Women Give More

Women at almost every income level give more to charity than men; and they tend to give more often. For example, women who earn $23,509 or less gave an average of $540 per year, while men in that income bracket with similar life circumstances gave $281. Women who earn more than $103,000 annually gave $1,910 vs. men who gave $984. The one group where men’s giving was higher was among those who earn $23,510 to $43,499: Then men gave an average of $1,033, while women gave $701.
