Minneapolis #3 most generous city

It seems that the term “Minnesota nice” is quite deserved.  According to a new report, Minneapolis ranks right near the top for cities when it comes to online charitable donations per capita.  The figures for 2008, released today by Convio, ranks 273 major cities in regards to online contributions to non-profit organizations and find that Minneapolis comes in an astounding third place.

Confirming what we already knew, the numbers show that Minnesotans – and Minneapolitans in particular – are some of the most generous people in the country.  Minnesota is home to an incredible number of charities and non-profit organizations who will continue to depend on online contributions.  And as this shows, Minneapolis is a great place for them to call home.  Here’s the Top Ten list of cities:

  1. Alexandria, VA 
  2. Cambridge, MA
  3. Minneapolis, MN           
  4. Washington, DC            
  5. Arlington, VA                
  6. St. Louis, MO               
  7. Seattle, WA                  
  8. Bellevue, WA                
  9. Berkeley, CA
