A Just Cause
Resources to some very good social causes.........

With the large number of appearently non-profit, non-govermental organizations increasing the needs and options can seem overwhelming. We all have valid questions and concerns:

  1. Where do you start to reach out and contribute?
  2. What is the best way to contribute and help?
  3. How do you know your efforts will make a difference?
  4. Are the organizations I contribute my time and money to trustworthy?

In addition to the many formal charity organizations, there are specialized events to raise money and support for a multitude of causes. Of particular intrest and enjoyment are the various local motorcycle rider / biker events. information on tge many events in the Boise area can be found here.

Below are causes and organizations that we feel are delivering on their stated missions and trustworthy based on our own experience and research.
