Charities we support

As members of our World, Nation and Community we believe that charitable giving is very important.  We also are aware that there are numerous con artists and frauds posing as charities simply for the purpose of getting your money.  We feel that it is important to make sure that the people to whom we give our charitable dollars are legitimate.  There are several very good sources for learning more about charities and determining the scams and cons such as Charity Navigator.

We proudly support the following charities:
