Here at The Grommet, we tell the stories of Makers who have created innovative, new products. Non-profit businesses can be just as innovative as any other. When we discover a philanthropy with a novel approach to bettering the world, we share their story and invite our community to support them.
This year marks the fourth anniversary of Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. We’ve put together a list of nonprofits that we admire. The collective power of generosity can bring about real change -- help make an impact today by supporting a cause that is important to you.
