Charities to Support with a Donation on #GivingTuesday
Over the weekend, you might have spent your time running around trying to snag the best Black Friday deals, or maybe you spent the weekend avoiding the crowds and stampedes. Either way, we hope you saved a pretty penny for today.
Today is Giving Tuesday!
Giving Tuesday lets us continue giving past the gratitude of Thanksgiving. Many charitable organizations rely on donations from the public to carry out their missions.
Here are 5 non-profits supporting women that you should consider contributing to this #GivingTuesday:
“The National Organization for Women is the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States. NOW has hundreds of chapters and hundreds of thousands of members and activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Since our founding in 1966, NOW’s purpose is to take action through intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political, and economic life.”
“She Should Run is a non-partisan 501(c)3 organization expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders. She Should Run started as a project in 2008 and has evolved to become a movement working to create a culture that inspires women and girls to aspire towards public leadership. We believe that women of all backgrounds should have an equal shot at elected leadership and that our country will benefit from having a government with varied perspectives and experiences.”
“Girl Scouts, the largest girl-serving organization in the United States, builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.”
4) UN Women
