It’s been a privilege and a gift to research the best nonprofits to donate to for the Global Service Advent. I wanted organizations that had a track record of doing amazing work in each of the featured countries, and that represented a variety of causes and work.
All of these nonprofits to support are ones I’ve done my best to research and feel comfortable donating to personally (and we are, as we match all donations through us). We’ve looked into them on Global Giving and Charity Navigator, and hope this list provides you with a starting point of amazing organizations to support around the world, as well.
A BIG thank you to Stacey for all her help in finding so many incredible organizations to support!
