Of course states like Utah show high charitable giving because they TITHE and Churches are lumpedRead More together as charitable organizations. There is a large Mormon population in Utah. Giving to your Church goes to running the Church etc. and may not go to actually feeding the hungry, clothing people etc. Is there anything wrong with giving to your Church, of course not, but it will tip the scale in favor of Republicans who tend to be Christian. Just wanted to point this out. So how do we define Charitable giving?

"Is there anything wrong with giving to your Church" I suppose it depends on whatRead More "wrong" means. If "wrong" means wasting (your) money, then yes, there is something wrong. If "wrong" means giving to the church in order to score points with whatever god you believe in, then yes, that selfish act might be wrong.

"A look at how faith impacts charitable giving. More religious states had higher rates ofRead More giving, but when donations to religious institutions were stripped out, non-religious states moved up in the ranks." Second chart points this out.

Thank you, Michelle!!

Newhart Middle School is actually the first middle school that SOR has granted a garden, so, no, weRead More are not responsible for that garden, however, it is wonderful to hear that your school has a garden, and that is a great testament to your teachers, administrators, and parent volunteers! Hopefully, the students are utilizing the garden as a learning tool, because it is such an asset to have at any school!
