Whatever your political persuasion, the current political climate suggests continued devolution trends meaning continued cutbacks with respect to social systems and asymmetrical changes to the tax code with significant implications for philanthropy and the nonprofits they support.
These shift suggest we need to take more responsibility for and control over protecting the very social fabric upon which our civilization is based, and as we approach the giving season, here are some resources to help you make informed decisions about how to express YOUR love of humanity…

Compassion It in Prison & Jails
The beauty of compassion? It benefits everyone. We recently extended our reach to include inmates of San Diego’s state prison and county jails, thanks to partnerships with the nonprofits Brilliance Inside and Prison Yoga Project. We collected and shared stories from some of the inmates, and we hope you’ll take a few minutes to read them.
Thank you for supporting our work and for making a compassion a priority in your everyday life.
