Money matters, as we all well know, and purchasing power is a real thing. What, where and how we choose to support organizations, spaces, people and businesses are small choices that we alone control—and that speaks volumes. Here are a few we encourage you to explore: 

The Loveland Foundation: Founded by academic, activist, writer and lecturer, Rachel Cargle, "The Loveland Foundation is committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on Black women and girls. Our resources and initiatives are collaborative and they prioritize opportunity, access, validation, and healing." 

Abortion Care Network: "The national association for independent community-based, abortion care providers and their allies. Together we work to ensure the rights of all people to experience respectful, dignified abortion care." (Abortion access is at its most vulnerable point in decades right now.)

RAICES: "We defend the rights of immigrants and refugees, empower individuals, families and communities, and advocate for liberty and justice."

First Book, via the Hope Love Give campaign: This org transforms the lives of children through reading and literacy—by providing access to books. (And Penguin Random House is committed to matching all donations throughout the holiday season.)

Clean Water Action: Their mission? To protect our environment, health, economic well-being and community quality of life. And our planet needs all the help it can get right now. "Things are getting worse...it's more urgent than ever."

Every Mother Counts: Working to make pregnancy and child birth safe for every mother, every where, we feel especially connected to this charity since we chatted with its founder, Christy Turlington Burns, about her life-changing work.

And remember, don't pass over local charities and non-profits working hard in your communities to do good. Many of them could use your time and support in other ways than financial.
