There are a lot of groups doing great work. Here are three to which I have devoted the most time, and to which I have given the most money. All are worth your consideration.
DC Scores builds soccer teams through after-school programs for over 1,450 low-income DC youth at 42 schools by instilling self-expression, physical fitness, and a sense of community and on whose board I served as president. It is a great organization and well worth supporting.
Equal Justice USA, one of the nation’s most effective criminal justice reform organizations on whose board I served as a founding member. Those interested in criminal justice reform should check it out.
I am a loyal supporter of my alma mater, Emerson College, whose Washington DC program I helped launch, and on whose national alumni board I served as president.
