In Online Giving, D.C. Among Most Generous

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new ranking of the most generous cities in online donations shows Seattle residents give the most money to charity, followed by three cities in the Washington, D.C., region.

Blackbaud, a technology provider for nonprofits, found Seattle ranked first for the second year in 2012, followed by Alexandria, Va., Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Va.

The Charleston, S.C.-based company ranked cities with more than 100,000 people based on individual donations online. The report Thursday found donors in 265 cities gave $509 million last year, up 15 percent from 2011. Blackbaud provides technology for online fundraising.

The top 10 also includes Ann Arbor, Mich., Cambridge, Mass., Berkeley, Calif., San Francisco, St. Louis and Minneapolis.

Regionally, the South has the most cities in the top 25, followed by the West, Midwest and Northeast.
