I Am Proud to Support These 34 Nonprofits (and Could You Support Some, Too?)

Every year, I try to support a few charities, causes, and other nonprofits. Usually, this means figuratively writing a few checks for relatively small amounts of money. I do what I can and am happy to do so.

My wife and I recently settled on the 501(c)(3) organizations we are supporting this year with cash. My company (21st Century Fox) is double-matching employee donations through 2018, so our dollars actually will have a triple effect.

These are some organizations, charities, cultural institutions, and other entities I have supported in recent years via donations, fundraising, admission fees, memberships, volunteering, promotion, and retail shopping.

(Note: I didn’t support all of them this year and I may have forgotten some museums and other cultural institutions I visited.)

If you choose to give, I encourage you to do some due diligence and give to causes you truly believe in, demonstrate a track record of success, and have good financial practices. Charity Navigator is a useful resource for rating nonprofits.
