The Phillips Guide to Give to the Max 2011

There are 100’s of organizations serving the greater Phillips Community.  Most are or were doing great work for our neighborhoods.   For this year’s Give to the Max Day I compiled a list of Phillips nonprofits, similar to last year’s list.

The criteria:

1) Based in or clearly serve the Phillips neighborhoods,

2) Have a completed profile (it is really simple to do so). 

Any exemptions were unintended.

Below is your 2012 list of organizations that you should consider donating to for Give to the Max Day.  Really any day is a good day to support them, but today is special. Each donation has the potential to win the recieving organization an extra $1,000 or even $15,000.  How awesome would it be to see your $5 donation exponentially grow into a $15,000 donation!

Organizations that I’ve personally supported in the past:

Midtown Greenway Coalition
