Organizations that can focus on the rapidly changing needs of the manufacturing sector are invaluable. From advocacy on Capitol Hill, to reaching out a hand to veterans, and disadvantaged youth, non-profits fill a roll that is not always possible at the institutional level, and is too broad in scope at the factory level.

The list below is far from complete, so please offer up your favorite non-profit so we can be a stronger, more inclusive community.
