At CitizenRacecar, our mission has always revolved around uplifting those who make a positive impact in the world. In that spirit, this Giving Tuesday we’re shining a spotlight on the remarkable nonprofits that we’ve had the pleasure of working with throughout the last year. Without further ado, here are ten remarkable organizations (in alphabetical order) truly deserving of your support!

The ALS Association has worked for decades at the forefront of research and advocacy on behalf of people around the country living with ALS and their families.
We’re proud to have continued our work on the podcast Connecting ALS this year, a show that provides insight and community for those affected by ALS.
