Giving in the News: Women Give More Than Men, According to a New Study

Women are more generous than men when it comes to charitable giving, according to a review of Internal Revenue Service data by the consulting firm Grant Thornton, reports Business Wire.

American women gave almost $5-billion more than their male counterparts in 2005, the last year for which such data are publicly available, according to the Chicago firm. These findings reverse the IRS’s last study of giving by gender, in 1997, when men were found to have given nearly $3-billion more than women. Giving by women overall in 2005 reached $21.7-billion, according to study, while men overall gave $16.8-billion.
