When disaster strikes, our instincts turn toward helping those in need. Indeed, during the height of the COVID pandemic, generosity was ample as neighbor helped neighbor and worked within their means to support nonprofits and causes they held dear. With international warfare in Ukraine and the Middle East, many of us are compelled to help however we can.

Whether thousands of miles away or the next town over, financial support is often what's most needed and is what can most easily be provided during times of crisis.
