DONATE INTERSECTIONALY

We believe in supporting the needs of individuals and communities, and in helping them get the tools they need to help themselves. We believe that in order to affect change, you must address issues at every intersection.

 

On this page, you’ll find a few organizations that we know, love and believe in to get your giving started. Because support is best delivered when sustained, we suggest you pick a handful of organizations and continue to commit donations to them every month. We update this page regularly, leaving each list archived for your reference.
