ABC anchor Charles Gibson assigned a report by the Giving USA Foundation on trends in charitable donations to himself. "Americans give a lot," was the bottom line. Last year total philanthropy amounted to $295bn, with the top three categories being $97bn to religious institutions, $41bn to educational ones and $12bn to the arts. Claire Gaudiani, author of The Greater Good, told Gibson: "More Americans make a donation every year than vote, by a long shot, than watch the Super Bowl and even than eat a fast food meal."
