11 Amazing Nonprofits to Support this Holiday Season

At Notogroup, we are thankful for all of the wonderful mission-driven clients we partner with every day, from volunteering our time to providing executive recruitment services. As we head into Thanksgiving, we give thanks for the opportunity to work with nonprofits that are making a difference in many ways:


Access Fund


Access Fund is a national organization dedicated to preserving climbing access and conserving the climbing environment. The Access Fund brings climbers together to fight for these areas, not just for access but for the integrity of these amazing places. Today,1 in 5 climbing areas in the United States is threatened by an access issue—whether through land and resource development, unnecessarily restrictive regulation of climbing, or outright bans, the list of threats is long and constantly evolving.

Childswork Learning Center

They embrace a play-based, constructivist education approach that encourages children to explore their natural interests, take chances, and lead in their own learning.

They are dedicated to providing a supportive, nurturing and encouraging environment for children and their families to develop relationships, discover new ideas, and cultivate a joy for learning.
