We launched The Giving List to help the important nonprofits featured in this book spend less time fundraising and more time doing the critical work demanded of them.
Healing from the wounds of the pandemic and the scars of racial inequity require the work of the community-based organizations that fill these pages. We have assembled their stories in the hopes that you will turn the page and find ways to engage.
Many nonprofits, especially those that are earlier stage and grassroots, are too reliant on lopsided and overly restrictive funding. This impedes their ability to derive the predictable, unrestricted revenue they need to focus on what’s most important: the work. By sharing their stories with you, we have a chance to break that cycle.
Please join us by supporting your local nonprofits on the front lines of justice, whether that be fighting racism; using the arts to shape culture; helping children, youth, and families in need; or striving to preserve our environment.
We will all be better for it.
