Denton County residents are some of the most generous Texans, a new study has found.
In a recent study, financial advice website SmartAsset dug into IRS data to find the places where residents were giving the most. The study measured how much people donate as a percentage of their net income and the proportion of people in each county who make charitable donations, according to a SmartAsset news release.
According to the study, Denton County ranks No. 5 in Texas, behind Collin, Rockwall, Travis and Kendall counties. Denton County’s charitable donations add up to 1.52% of income, the lowest of Texas’ top 10, and its percentage of returns itemizing charitable contributions is 10.51%, third-most in the top 10.
