The Ways People Give at Church
In which areas of the church budget do people give the most?

This year's annual State of the Plate research combined results from this and the past four years to create a composite view of tithers–people who give 10 percent or more of their income.

Beyond that, more than 80 percent of a church's most generous donors contribute to missions and the benevolence fund.
