Since Microsoft acquired GitHub, I found myself in an unexpected situation: wealthy. I don’t care about legacy, so I try to give money away to people and organizations that can put it to good use. These are the non-profits I regularly give to, and a little context for why I like them.

Tahoe Local

I’m a big believer in your local community, so a lot of the non-profits I give to are doing good things around Tahoe (and other places I frequent).

Carbon Removal & Sequestration

The planet isn’t doing so good as of late. These are a few organizations I think are helping us prepare for a future where we’ll take carbon removal seriously.

Social Good

I don’t really know what to call this category, but I’ve settled on social good. It’s organizations that do things like combat global poverty, prevent people from dying, or builds some kind of super valuable free infrastructure for the world.
