Arlington is the 7th most-generous locality (with a population over 100,000) in the U.S. according to new rankings from Blackbaud, a software company dealing in fundraising solutions for nonprofits.
Arlington residents made 72,031 chartitable online donations that were tracked by Blackbaud, for a total of $7.3 million. That’s $33,671 per 1,000 residents.
Washington, D.C. ranked as the fourth most generous city and Alexandria ranked second. In Alexandria, $47,192 was donated online per 1,000 residents D.C. averaged $38,172 donated per 1,000 residents.
The nation’s “most generous city” was Seattle, with $53,542 in donations per 1,000 residents.
Arlington ranked fourth on Blackbaud’s list last year. But Blackbaud spokeswoman Nicole McGougan said the company increased the survey size for its most recent rankings, which makes a direct comparison to last year’s rankings impossible.
“Comparing the data is like comparing apples and oranges,” McGougan said.
The top 10 “most generous online cities” on this year’s list are:
- Seattle, Wash.
- Alexandria, Va.
- Atlanta, Ga.
- Washington, D.C.
- Cambridge, Ma.
- Ann Arbor, Mich.
- Arlington, Va.
- Cincinnati, Ohio
- Bellevue, Wash.
- San Francisco, Calif.
