American Bird Conservancy: "Our commitment to bird conservation remains absolute, even while some other groups shift their mission to prioritize people over wildlife. We believe unequivocally that conserving birds and their habitats benefits all other species — including people....We innovate, build on sound science, and work in partnership to achieve four goals: halt extinctions, protect habitats, eliminate threats, and build capacity for bird conservation."
Nourish Now: "Nourish Now strives to meet this goal by collecting surplus fresh food from our dedicated food donor partners throughout the Washington D.C. metro area. Food is then redistributed directly to families in need and to over 60 other Montgomery County, Maryland nonprofit organizations that provide food assistance to those in need. Food that is donated to other nonprofit agencies strengthens Montgomery County’s food assistance sector as a whole by saving each organization funding that would otherwise be used to purchase food. All of Nourish Now’s programs are centered around bringing food security to those in need."
Cure Sanfilippo Foundation: "To advocate for and fund research directed towards a cure and treatment options for patients with Sanfilippo Syndrome, a genetic defect passed on from each parent that results in their body being unable to break down and recycle natural cellular waste due to a missing enzyme. Because the waste isn’t broken down, it builds up in their brains, taking away all their skills and knowledge until they pass away in their early teens."
