WalletHub is out with its list of the most charitable states for 2017 and guess who cracked the top 10? That's right, South Dakota.

As in years past Utah came out as #1, followed by Maryland, Minnesota, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Virginia, South Dakota, Georgia and Oklahoma.

Here's how some of the other states around us fared. North Dakota is ranked #17, Nebraska is ranked #20, Iowa is ranked #32.
