We donate to a number of organizations: Second Harvest Food Bank, American Cancer Society, KQED (public radio), Our City Forest (plants trees), Sacred Heart Comunity Center, and a few others - school fundraisers, fundraisers for the scouts, sponsoring someone doing a walk for whatever, etc.


For what it is worth, I do not like the United Way and will not give them money.

i have to agree with you on the united way... i used to work at b.b. and my donation of a big 2 bucks was taken out weekly out of the paychecks.. and other than the chick they sent out to help set up all of us employees with the adding that deduction to our checks... WE NEVER ever heard if and who that money supposedly helped.... but the chick had a nice business suit...(LOL)... i soon withdrew my donation from them..
