I just got off the phone with the Human Rights Campaign soliciting for a donation. As I told him, if I had the money they are definitely one of the groups I would give to.
In light of that, I thought I would share who I do support ideologically and would support monetarily if I had the funds.
In no particular order:
Local Volunteer Firefighters
Local Parish and Diocese
St. Vincent de Paul Society (check with your local Catholic Church)
