The Center on Philanthropy New Study: Women More Charitable Than Men -- SEATTLE, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --: "SEATTLE, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As Indiana University releases a new study today showing women are more charitable then men, Christian humanitarian group World Vision says these findings mirror what it is seeing among its supporters across the country. Among the nearly 885,000 Americans who sponsor a child through the organization, three out of four are female.

According to the study by The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, female-headed households—in nearly every income bracket—are more generous towards charities than male-headed households. The survey, titled 'Women Give 2010,' proves that women play a very powerful role in the world of philanthropy both in the likelihood of their giving, and in the amount that is given, the Center says.

World Vision says that while it actively engages both men and women, as well as youth and other groups, women do play a unique role in tackling critical issues in world poverty."
