Buddhism has changed my life completely since i have found it, if i can improve someone else's life by grabbing the attention of even one more person, i think that would be a real step forward towards the end of suffering.
This is very good
In answer to your original post, a person I know - A Theravadan, has given support to this organisation called the Liberation Prison Project.
A (Mahayana) project which seeks to teach prisoners about the Dha(r)mma, distributes books and teaches meditation. I happen to think this is a good action.
Also, there is this company based in Taiwan, if you've ever spent some time in a Monastery you'll know the people I mean - The Buddha Educational Foundation
. They print thousands and thousands of Dhamma texts, both Theravada & Mahayana, and then give them away for free to Monasteries, Schools, Libraries, and personal orders too. I love these people, it brings a tear to my eye when I think about all the goodness these people bring to the world.
To cut a long story short, morality knows no religious borders. Support away, you're got a good motivation and it should be encouraged.
"But, Udāyi, let be the past, let be the future, I shall set you forth the Teaching: When there is this this is, with arising of this this arises; when there is not this this is not, with cessation of this this ceases." - Majjhima ii,32
