Support Crucial Organizations

Consider donating time and/or money to the following organizations. Some of them will have a lot of work ahead of them over the next four years, and some face losing federal funding. If you can, consider a smaller monthly donation over a larger one-time donation so that organizations can count on that money when preparing their budgets.

This list is drawn partially from this great list from W Magazine, this list from Jezebel, and through my own aggregation. This is by no means a comprehensive list – there are so many deserving organizations on both a national and local level, but this can be a good jumping-off point. If you’d prefer to donate your time, check out the local branches of these organizations in your area, or look into starting one if one doesn’t already exist.
