Maryland came in as the 2nd most charitable state in the country, including being ranked 1st in percentage of population who donated money. The report also released its picks for the Best Charities for 2023 and a Charity Calculator to help donors decide where and how to give.

To determine where the most generous Americans are inspiring others to be more selfless, WalletHub compared the 50 states based on 19 key indicators of charitable behavior.
