A new study by the Chronicle of Philanthropy details charity-giving by zip codes. The study finds areas with more GOP voters are more likely to support charities.
Middle-income people gave more to charities in 2008 than wealthy people, and those in Republican-leaning states gave more than those in Democratic states, a new study by the Chronicle of Philanthropy finds.
