Study: Macon is a Top 25 Philanthropic City | News
A new study lists Macon as one of the top 25 most charitable cities in the US.
Four Georgia cities made the cut. Macon ranks 13. That's behind #8 Albany, but ahead of #19 Hinesville and #23 Columbus.

In metro Macon, that number is about 7.7 percent.

According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy's website, other notable Georgia cities in the top 100 on national list include Augusta (#26 - 7.2 percent), Savannah (#71 - 6 percent), Athens (#74 - 6 percent) and Atlanta (#82 - 5.9 percent).
