10 Charities and Nonprofits That Do Great Work

Working With the Nonprofit Sector

Each year we are lucky to work with some incredible organizations both locally and across North America. Through this work we meet amazing people, learn about the great work being done in our communities, and hear stories about the people that require the programs and services offered by charitable and nonprofit organizations.

The following list includes just a few of the charitable and nonprofit organizations that we support through reduced nonprofit rates for our services, by volunteering our time and knowledge, through monetary donations, or a combination. Through this involvement, we’ve seen first hand the dedication and hard work done by the people in each of these organizations to improve our local and global communities.

As we near the end of 2015, these would be some great organizations to consider supporting through your year end giving.
