Scarborough Research released a study that compares 81 U.S. markets, including Denver, to understand what types of charities people in each market contribute to. According to the Denver Business Journal article, Denver is tied for second place with Washington, San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose and Portland, Ore., in the percentage of households — 13 percent — that support political organizations.
Denver tied for third place in support for arts and cultural organizations, at 14 percent of households, the study shows. And Denver tied for fourth in its support of social-care and welfare groups, at 24 percent. The national average is 17 percent. Health care and religious groups are less popular in Denver.
