As many of you know, I’m working towards my doctorate in psychology. As a part of that, I must complete a pre-doc internship – I’m completing that requirement by working at a community clinic. It’s a non-profit and I’ve been once again reminded of how difficult it is for non-profits to raise the very necessary funds to deliver services and how true it is that every little bit helps.
It’s also that time of year where many organizations are soliciting for funds. I’d like to use our collective power to highlight non-profits that we think are worthy of our donations. I have a bias for organizations that provide goods and direct services to those in need, rather than advocacy organizations, but YMMV.
Here are the ground rules:
- One recommendation per post, so that likes are unambiguous.
- Disclose any personal or professional ties to the organization you’re promoting.
- Include a few sentences describing why you think this is a good organization to donate to.
- Include a link to the organization’s website.
I look forward to seeing what organizations move you to support them. IMHO, the smaller and more local – the better!!!
