1. Asante Africa Foundation
    They work on educational initiatives in Kenya and Tanzania. My fave is the leadership and entrepreneurship incubator where students are encouraged to pay it forward. www.asanteafrica.org
  2. Kiva
    I currently have 11 outstanding loans being paid back and am determined to do a loan to all 82 countries. www.kiva.org
  3. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento Area
    I favor the branch where I'm a "big", but any location is deserving of your time and $. http://www.bbbs-sac.org/
  4. Michael J. Fox Foundation
    My grandma had Parkinsons and anything that can be done to prevent it is a hero in my book. https://www.michaeljfox.org
