Support a local non-profit

The end of the year is traditionally when non-profit organizations send fund-raising requests and people more about making contributions. This year as budgets are squeezed I'm sure that many worthy organizations will need our support more than ever to continue their efforts in 2009 and beyond.

The IRS online search tool finds an impressively long list of organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions that are based in Allston and Brighton. In the spirit of shopping locally, donating locally is another way to support our community.

There are too many for me to add links to all their websites, so I only did the ones that start with "A" whose websites were easy to find. To learn more, consider services like GuideStar where tax returns and other information can be found.
