‘Tis the season for giving — and the latest edition of Center for High Impact Philanthropy’s (CHIP) annual giving guide.

University of Pennsylvania’s charity think tank aims to help donors make more informed choices about their monetary donations.

This year’s High Impact Giving Guide highlights eight organizations focused on three issue areas — “those recovering from substance abuse, hard-to-reach communities lacking basic healthcare, and students at various stages of life at risk of being left behind” — plus an updated section on disaster philanthropy.

One local nonprofit made the cut this year: Prevention Point Philadelphia (PPP), the Kensington-based org that offers syringe exchange and other social services for people living with HIV and substance abuse disorders.

CHIP says PPP can be credited with playing a major role in reducing the city’s previously high rate of new HIV diagnoses attributed to injection drug use — from 46 percent in 1992, when the program started, to just 5.6 percent in 2016.

For even more giving-related reading, check out the new guidebook pairing of CHIP’s 2017 report on how to best help women and girls around the world, “The XX Factor,” plus CHIP’s guide to aiding immigrant families separated at the border and its guide accompanying the MacArthur Foundation’s massive 100&Change grant announcement last December.
