Wyoming has the second-highest volunteer rate in the country. People from Wyoming take more time to enrich their community without making a profit from it.

Wyoming does more than donate their time. Wyoming is also among the nation's leaders in the percentage of donated income. Wyoming ranked fourth behind South Dakota, Utah, and Arkansas.

Wyoming is the second-most charitable state overall, with an impressive 39.2% volunteer rate, which is the second-highest in the country. When you consider that the state is the least populated in the nation, it may not be surprising to learn that it excels at providing many charitable giving options on a per-resident basis. - WalletHub
