Time to get those charitable ducks in order, especially if you’re not going to be able to itemize under the new tax laws next year.
This year is probably a good one to do the Donor Advised Fund. We’ve opted not to just because we want more flexibility right now with so much uncertainty, but your situation may be different!
Planned Parenthood : They need us more than ever before
RAINN : help people impacted by sexual violence
CAIR : Help Muslim victims of prejudice
Donors Choose (though, to be honest, I think the wobble chairs everyone in my [not poor] town wants are expensive and a waste of money– but there are a lot of teachers in lower income districts that want books and pencils and math supplies) Note: I am incapable of clicking on this without donating something. I am such a soft touch for learning. Ugh, #2 just sent me another link I had to fund. Stahp!
WNDB: We need diverse books!
ACLU : One of the things standing in between us and fascism
EveryLibrary.org : Helps political actions to fund public, school, and college libraries
EFF (the Electronic Frontier Foundation) seems pretty relevant right now
Emily’s List: Help pro-choice women Democrats get elected to office!
Grumpy Nation: Link us up to your favorite charities!
