DETROIT (WWJ) – Though times have been tough in the state of Michigan, a new report shows Michigan ranks number 13 nationwide regarding people’s generosity. The study addressed which state’s residents contributed the greatest percentage of their discretionary income to charity.

Annie Dunsky of the United Way of Southeastern Michigan feels very proud to live here.

“No matter how hard times are – we really need to lean on each other, and our generosity speaks volumes even through the times we’ve experienced,” said Dunsky.

“When we are in a situation where times are harder, we have to lean on each other to make our community a better and stronger place – it really speaks to helping and rallying together for each other,” she said.

Michigander’s contribute an average of 4.5 percent of discretionary income to charitable causes.
