India and the United States have the highest number of people who regularly donate to charity
with 184 and 164 million respectively, according to the CAF’s World Giving Index. However, when the percentage of a country's population is measured, Myanmar comes first. When interviewed, 92 percent of people in Myanmar said they had donated money to charity during the past month while in Thailand
, the figure was 87 percent. One of the main reasons for the extremely high donation rates in both countries is the high proportion of Theravada Buddhists practising Sangha Dana.
