According to a recent study, Seattle is the leading city in America for online donations for the third year in a row.
USA Today reports that Blackbaud's annual survey found that Seattle was the most generous once again, topping Alexandria, Va. and Atlanta:
In its sixth annual survey, Blackbaud's report looked at the total amount donated through the company's services for 265 cities with a population of more than 100,000. In total, $822 million was raised from more than 8.3 million donations.
Steve McLaughlin, director of Blackbaud's Idea Lab, pointed to age demographics and a concentration of people with more disposable income for the rankings, specifically Seattle's. "These cities are the sweet spot for online donor demographics because they have a higher percentage of younger, wealthier and tech-savvy donors," he told USA Today.
For a city that just approved the highest minimum wage in the U.S., this certainly isn't surprising.
