OAKLAND, Calif., February 10, 2022 /3BL Media/ - VolunteerMatch, the largest nonprofit network on the web connecting individuals and workplaces with volunteer opportunities, combed through troves of publicly available data, as well as internal figures on volunteer engagement across every zip code in the US, and ranked the top 50 most Kindhearted Cities in America in their 2022 Kindhearted Cities Index.

Topping the list as the most Kindhearted city is Portland, Oregon- a city known for its progressive values in the areas of Generosity, Fairness & Equality, the Environment, and Economics - all of which were part of the methodology to create the index.

We hope publishing this list will encourage more individuals and companies to reach out to local nonprofits to get involved in their communities,” said Greg Baldwin, President & CEO at VolunteerMatch.

“Recognizing and fostering kindness in our communities has never been so essential. We wanted to shine a light on kindness and civic engagement throughout the country,” said Ben Chutz, Vice President, Business Development & Marketing at VolunteerMatch who led the initiative.
