If you have walked on a clean beach, enjoyed a park, adopted a pet, attended an arts event or music event live or on zoom, received health care services, or enrolled a child in an activity—you have encountered the good work of numerous local nonprofits.

Often the benefits are not visible—when the work prevents or mitigates negative impacts. One thing is certain:  Our community would be far less desirable without the dedication of these groups, driven by nothing more than a desire to improve our collective circumstances.

We vetted and selected 40 valuable local nonprofits and created a platform to make it easy for you to browse, donate and help make our community an even better place to live.

Join us this holiday season!
