Research reveals the biggest givers

Edinburgh has been revealed as the UK’s third most generous city.

It comes on the back of GoFundMe research showing the UK to be the third most generous country in the world.

Scotland’s capital topped the chart last year but was relegated into third by Derry and Cambridge this year respectively.  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, GoFundMe donors responded to the widespread impact with more than £450 million worldwide, raised through more than nine million donations for people and charities affected by the pandemic.  


John Coventry, the funding website’s senior international director, said: “The depth and breadth of kindness shown across the UK in 2020 has given us all some inspiration in a year to forget.

“We’ve been humbled to see millions of people coming together on GoFundMe to feed front line workers, help families in need and support beloved businesses charities throughout 2020.

“It’s an important reminder that even during such a difficult year, humanity and generosity has shone brightly.”

This year the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund received more than 500,000 donations - more than any other fundraiser in GoFundMe history.

Those people who care for the crying and helpless world will reap their reward of life with peace and happiness in life, and in the next life too. Those who hoard their wealth for their posterity will be indirectly destroying their posterity through making many of them lazy and unproductive.
