I went full-on rant on the birdsite, but I want to post a more friendly list of non-profit orgs that I think are doing good work and which I support monetarily. If you can, I encourage you to so as well.
1) The Bail Project - https://bailproject.org
Fighting to end our racist and classist system of cash bail.
I give to them periodically
2) The Repair Association - https://repair.org
Working to get Right to Repair laws passed in every state in the US. I give to them monthly
3) The American Civil Liberties Union - https://aclu.org
Fighting for the rights of women, minorities, LGBT+ and defending our freedoms in court. I made my first donation to this group today.
4) 4) The Electronic Frontier Foundation - https://eff.org
Defending our online freedoms, and fighting against stupid encryption backdoors, warrantless wiretaps, and online censorship. Their work got computer software code First Amendment protection. I donate to them occasionally
