No need to go to Charles Dickens to find a Scrooge. You can find them on your home turf.

According to the Colorado Association of Nonprofit Organizations, the state's charities are in a world of hurt.

That's because government aid has been dropping and demand is rising.

A survey finds 76 percent of nonprofits funded by the state have reduced budgets while 58 percent saw demand for assistance rise.

This, as another survey finds Coloradans who itemize their tax returns earn 8 percent more than the national average and give 8 percent less.

That ranks Colorado as 46th in the country on the generosity index.
