Despite their deeper wallets, wealthier Georgians give less to charity than their lower-income neighbors, a study shows. A recent analysis from the Chronicle of Philanthropy studied the charitable habits of Americans based on itemized deductions on tax returns, and it broke down the data by income levels. The study indicates the lower a person’s income in Hall County, the greater percentage he or she gives to charity.
