    No. Try "Forty-five percent of people gave money to charity in 1990".

    Re: Correction

    Is it OK to say 'The percentage of people giving money to charity in 1990 was 45%'?

    Yes.

    I'm wondering why the OP needs it in with the participle in the given word order.

    He says he's an academic but this looks like a homework assignment.
