GoFundMe has released its year-end report for 2023 and one Minnesota city is named in its Top 10 most generous cities.

GoFundMe is the most popular platform for crowd-sourcing donations for individuals, families, non-profits, and communities for those times when a little, or a lot, of help is needed, according the GoFundMe, more than 30 million people gave and received some help during 2023.

How Much Was Donated in 2023?

One donation is made per second on the platform, with $50 being the most common donation amount, and people must love kicking off the year with generosity, because January 2nd, 2023 was the most generous day of the previous year.
