Who are the most generous online U.S. cities?

When it comes to charitable giving, some U.S. cities consistently rise to the top in their adoption of digital giving channels. Blackbaud recently released its fifth annual ranking of the Most Generous Online U.S. Cities based on 2012 online giving data from Blackbaud customers.

The rankings remain largely unchanged from last year’s analysis, with the top four cities holding firm. For a second straight year, Seattle, Wash., earned the top spot, followed by Alexandria, Va., and Washington, D.C. Minneapolis made the biggest strides, jumping four spots to enter the Top 10 in 2012. Bellevue, Wash., dropped one position and out of the Top 10.

The analysis ranks 265 cities with total population of more than 100,000 based on per capita online giving. More than $509 million was donated online by donors in the 265 major cities, a 15 percent jump from 2011.

The current rankings come from donations processed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012.
