Giving Tuesday 2023

It’s the most wonderful day of the year, Giving Tuesday!


As a web design agency, we love this day because we work solely with Positive Impact Organizations and Giving Tuesday has a direct effect on our incredible clients. Created in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world. Whether you help by donating financially or sharing about a new org on social media, it all helps!


With so many amazing organizations, it can feel overwhelming to choose where to donate. So every year we compile a vetted list of orgs for you to learn more about. If you are interested in learning about even more orgs, we have our previous 2022 Giving Tuesday list posted here and our 2021 Giving Tuesday list posted here!


Here is a list of Positive Impact Organizations to support this Giving Tuesday 2023

Lauri Carleton Memorial Fund 

Lauri Carleton was not just a beloved mother, wife, and friend but a founding member of the Mountain Provisions Co-op community in the San Bernardino Mountains. She was a fierce advocate for love, equality, unity, and justice. Her tragic death has left a void in our hearts, but her vision for a more caring, inclusive, and harmonious community lives on.

They are led by a board of exceptional Native Hawaiians that support the critical work of the talented staff who work in grassroots communities to restore fragile ecosystems, promote cultural rights and practices, enhance community well-being, and advocate for native rights and social justice. 


Happy Trails for Kids 

Happy Trails for Kids provides exciting and fun-filled overnight camp experiences for children in the foster care system. Their programming extends well beyond camp, offering year-round reunion events, weekly extracurricular programs, as well as older youth initiatives. Campers grow up with Happy Trails. Our motto is “once a camper, always a camper” and regardless of how many foster homes or other changing circumstances, their commitment to campers is steadfast and resilient. Whether singing campfire songs, climbing a rock wall or participating in one of their monthly reunion events, their dedicated team of counselors, most of whom had personal experience in foster care, provide a circle of support, encouragement and inspiration.



BiSHoP was created in 2009 by a group of committed community workers and volunteers inspired by Bill Sorro’s work to promote social change. BiSHoP was initially established to provide tenants’ rights workshops to the families of WWII Filipino veterans who were primarily living in the South of Market area of San Francisco. Services further expanded to application assistance and case management as their families sought affordable housing in San Francisco. Many of them were living in alleyways and were experiencing tenants’ rights issues such as habitability, overcrowding and subleasing which motivated them to find affordable housing in the city. Since then the volunteers founded the Bill Sorro Housing Program (BiSHoP) to provide tenants’ rights counseling and comprehensive service of access to affordable housing so that clients can receive a holistic approach on their housing needs.



NAMI started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 and has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, they are an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates and 49 State Organizations who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.

They are ready to let their experience work for you.


She Should Run

Women are underrepresented at all levels of government. In order to reach equal representation in our lifetime, we need to build a community of women who are curious about the possibilities of public leadership. Our democracy only stands to benefit from the unique perspectives and lived experiences that women bring to leadership, and we need to work together to get them in office. She Should Run is driven by a bold goal to inspire 250,000 women from all walks of life to take their first steps toward public leadership and join our community by 2030.

News Literacy Project 

The News Literacy Project, a nonpartisan education nonprofit, is building a national movement to advance the practice of news literacy throughout American society, creating better informed, more engaged and more empowered individuals — and ultimately a stronger democracy. News literacy is an integral part of American life, and people of all ages and backgrounds know how to identify credible news and other information and understand the indispensable role a free press has in a democracy, empowering them to play a more equal and active role in the civic life of the country.

Through political education and field building, they work to create a future where health, mental health, and healing practitioners build power to intervene against the harm perpetuated by the medical-industrial complex while actively creating new liberatory ecosystems of care for our communities. They envision a world where our movement organizations are more resilient and strategic with the tools to navigate and collectively heal from violence, trauma, crisis, and uncertainty by organizing with politicized health and healing practitioners aligned with healing justice.
