Women more generous, more likely to donate, study says

Women are more generous than men when it comes to charitable donations, a study released today suggests.

In all income groups, women are more likely to give, and in four of five groups, they give more than men do — sometimes twice as much, according to the study by the Women's Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy.

In the study's middle range of income, $43,500 to $67,532, the average donation was $728 from women, $373 from men.
