(Worthy News) - Both charitable giving and religious beliefs have declined in the past two decades.
A report from the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and Vanguard Charitable found that the number of Americans donating to charity decreased from 2000 to 2016, the most recent year of available data.
In 2000, 66% of Americans gave to charity, but 16 years later, that number saw a 13-point drop and declined to 53%. That decline amounts to 20 million fewer households giving to charity. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
