Middle Class Philanthropist: Charity Navigator's Latest Report

Philanthropy is not reserved for those with a seven figure net worth.  Anyone, even those snuggled in the middle class can be philanthropic.  And when it comes to giving to charities, many Americans turn to Charity Navigator for an evaluation of an organization.

Out this past week, Charity Navigator released it's list of the Top 5 Cities For Charitable Performance.  Out of thirty, the following were at the top of the list:

  1. Houston;
  2. Kansas City;
  3. St. Louis;
  4. Cincinnati; and
  5. Portland.
Offering a positive spin in the fact that some organizations are thriving in an otherwise challenging economy was a pleasant change of pace in the news media.  And if you too would like to help support a cause, Charity Navigator my be a useful evaluation tool of where to put your hard earned dollars.
