WISH LIST
Your Guide to Charitable Giving

We get by with a little help from our friends – the sentiment rings especially true today. And that’s exactly what The Austin Chronicle’s annual wish list is all about: helping our friends, helping our community, and helping our city.

Though we dust off, revamp, and update the list each November with the holiday season of giving in mind, we encourage you, dear readers, to use it well into 2019 as these needs don’t get put away with the tinsel and the bows. This list, in its entirety, lives online year-round as one of the many ways we at the Chronicle hope to connect our inspiring community with the many incredible nonprofits that make Austin awesome. And please remember: In addition to the requests below, cash, computers, and volunteers are needed everywhere, so let’s get by together by giving what and where you can. It’s time to fulfill some wishes. – Sarah Marloff and Beth Sullivan
