Arlington Makes Most-Charitable List

Arlington landed third on a list of the top cities for online giving, according to cnet.com. The list was compiled by Convio, a firm that provides online services to non-profits.

Arlington donors gave, on average, $14.36 to charities via Convio. Alexandria placed first on the most-charitable list, with each donor giving an average of $20.24. Cambridge, Mass. placed second with $14.72 per donor.

The statistical significance of the list is unclear, since it only tracks donations to certain charities. Still, it’s nice to be recognized for our generosity. If you’re feeling particularly generous today, consider volunteering at or donating to the Arlington Free Clinic — or making a contribution to any number of local non-profits.
