This #GivingTuesday I am highlighting the work of some my amazing nonprofit clients.
Not only is Heartland Alliance one of my clients, but I used to be a staff person there! Heartland Alliance provides a wide variety of programs including some in truly innovative areas such as Refugee Health and housing for people with mental illness. A donation to Heartland Alliance is a great match for you if you’re interested in supporting a wide range of programs and services.

Ramah Darom is a Jewish camp and retreat center located in Georgia. This is the camp you always wanted to go to as a kid… and the camp that you want for your own kids. A donation to Ramah Darom is a great match for you if you’re interested in supporting high quality programming for kids and families, or if you’re interested in supporting the Jewish community.
Isles, Inc. combines two unique and important values into their mission: community development and environmental sustainability. They foster self-reliant families in healthy, sustainable communities. A donation to Isles, Inc. is a great match for you if you want to invest in sustainability - for individuals, communities and our planet.
I’m a board member of EverThrive Illinois because I love their combination of on-the-ground programs, like coordinating immunizations for kids, and powerful state- and national-level advocacy for health issues. Janine Lewis, Executive Director, is a powerhouse in her own right and she’s taking EverThrive to new levels of success. A donation to EverThrive Illinois is a great match for you if you want healthier families in Illinois, or if you’re passionate about combining advocacy with nonprofit programs.
