Southerners are a generous people who give more to good causes than folks in any other region of the country.
But according to a new report, this Southern giving mostly is charity—giving to relieve immediate distress—as opposed to philanthropy, which is financial support of good causes that invest in solutions for bigger problems.
The difference is highlighted in Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan, said Ferrel Guillory of the University of North Carolina."
