The Season of Giving


Which nonprofit organizations do you support to make our world better? During the holidays, our family meets, discusses, and chooses charitable organizations to give to.

It’s part of our annual gift-giving tradition.


So many organizations are working hard to improve our world. We always wish we had a million dollars each holiday to give away.


We start with our lists of the organizations we’ve been supporting—and watching. (We give throughout the year, not just during the holidays). We look at organizations in the arts, education, the environment, human rights, and many other categories.


Then we visit Charity Navigator https://www.charitynavigator.org/ to see which organizations are using their resources wisely. This website also has a lot of great information under the tab: Tips for Donors. (Yes, once you give to a nonprofit organization, you’re a donor!)


We visit the websites of individual nonprofit organizations to learn about their latest initiatives. Many of these get us very excited!


And then we start giving. And giving. And giving.


It’s one of my favorite parts of the holidays.


As you give gifts this season, consider including a nonprofit organization or two. Your gift makes a world of difference.
