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.
  2. Kiva
    I currently have 11 outstanding loans being paid back and am determined to do a loan to all 82 countries.
  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 $.
  4. Michael J. Fox Foundation
    My grandma had Parkinsons and anything that can be done to prevent it is a hero in my book.
