Guy Simonian's Charities

Since 2009 I've given a % of my annual income to charity. Initially I had 10 categories of need I addressed and supported over 100 charities. As time evolved I started giving more to fewer charities, so I had 17 charities in four categories. In 2022 I created a Donor Advised Fund which is a vehicle that allows me to easily donate appreciated assets to the supported charities. Here are some of the charities I support and why.
