SALT LAKE CITY — Utah is most charitable state in the country, thanks in part to generous members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to a new report.

A report by finance website WalletHub featured on USA Today ranked Utah first for the “highest percentage of donated income and highest percentage of population who donate time,” and specifically pointed to Utah’s high Mormon population.

The WalletHub report defined “charitable” as “volunteering and service,” as well as “charitable giving.” It also considered community service requirements for high school graduation and public charities per capita.

Utah was followed by Maryland, Minnesota, Wyoming and Wisconsin in the top five most charitable states.

Hawaii was named the least charitable state, accompanied by Rhode Island, Nevada, Louisiana, Arizona and Texas.
