Non-profits

So, I'm out of debt, and am slowly accreting money and it occured to me that at the very least to encourage things that I consider important I should start donating money to some non-profit organizations.

Top among my initial list are things like the EFF, greenpeace, the
green party, and alternet.

Any suggestions for other groups that could use $50-$100?

other than that bias (ahem :)) local rape crisis centers are always in need of money. i don't know about there but here in mass. there have also been huge cuts to state public health funding, including to hiv prevention & care programs.

But how can I give your organization money, I don't actually know it's name or website.

Though it's a pity you're not closer, I'd like to purge some of my old hardware.
The suggestion for local rape crisis centeres is a good one as well.
