Deseret News: Recent study shows poorer Americans may sacrifice more for charity, and it's time to remind the wealthy of their responsibilities too.
"The report stated that even though Americans earning more than $200,000 annually saw an increase in their income over the past six years, they gave 4.6 percent less of their income than they had previously, compared to those earning less than $100,000 per year, who gave 4.5 percent more. During the six-year time frame analyzed in the report, the United Way reported that the number of donors giving less than $2,000 jumped from 29 percent to 39 percent of all their donations. Large contributions were much harder to come by. It doesn’t have to be that way. Researchers at Rutgers University posit the rich are more unaware than uncaring." -- the Deseret News
