I started exploring the concept of philanthropy on this blog because I want to give back more. Being on the nonprofit side for many years, I’ve also felt a disconnect between the donor and the nonprofit. I’ve been searching for more meaningful ways to give.
I find inspiration from the people and businesses I feature for Philanthropy Friday, and I’m learning more and more about my own giving habits through my writing.
As I get deeper into my Giving Pledge and write more for the Global Team of 200, I realize I need a better way of keeping track of the nonprofits I support. Looking at the big picture helps me figure out where my heart and my money and my voice want to go. I can see where there are gaps, where I need to put forth more effort and where I might not want to revisit.
Below you’ll see a list of nonprofits I have supported through donating money, working with in some capacity, or advocating via my blog. The neat thing about this list, which is hosted on SkinnyScoop, is that you can scroll through it and check off the organizations that you support and create your own list. You can even add organizations that you support to the list.
It’s a big old curated list of awesome nonprofits to support. Will you help me in my exploration of philanthropy?
