The Top 5 Charities We’re Donating to This Year

wounded warrior project
As it’s the holiday season, many of us are taking time to reflect on how fortunate we are to be celebrating in good health surrounded by family and friends. But as we all know, not everyone is so lucky. As the saying goes, it is better to give than to receive. If you are looking for a last minute gift or haven’t given a charitable donation yet this year, today is the perfect day to do it. Not sure what to buy for the person who has everything? A charitable donation in his or her name is always a great gift. Looking for one last tax write-off for 2013? We are super stoked on these five charities, and we think you will be too.

Wounded Warrior Project
Built on the core values of fun, integrity, loyalty, innovation and service, Wounded Warrior Project raises awareness and enlists public aid to assist the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. They strive to help injured veterans aid and assist each other with unique programs and services. Donate Here

Broadway Cares
Drawing upon the talents, generosity and resources of the American theater community, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. Not only do they support organizations across the country that provide treatment and services to those suffering from HIV/AIDS, they increase public awareness and understanding through the creation and distribution of educational materials. Donate Here

Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Providing a safe place to grow and learn through relationships with caring, adult professionals, The Boys & Girls Club of America works to enable young people to reach their potential as productive, compassionate, responsible citizens. The organization’s programs and services promote and enhance the development of our youth by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Donate Here

Good360
With a mission to fulfill the needs of nonprofits through corporate product donations, Good360 is helping companies give back to the communities in which they work. They believe you can win them all by creating corporate, nonprofit and environmental “win-win” outcomes for unsold products and excess inventory. Because why should an unsold product go to a landfill when it can help someone in need? Donate Here

Brother’s Brother Foundation
Designed to fulfill its mission by connecting people’s resources with people’s needs, Brother’s Brother Foundation’s mission is to promote international health and education through the efficient and effective distribution of donated medical, educational, agricultural and other resources. In the last 55 years, BBF has helped people in more than 146 countries by working through and in partnership with local agencies that want to help their own people. Donate Here
