2014 Great Nonprofits Top-rated List: Who-s On Your List?

charity reviewsWe’ve all heard the stories of non-profits miss-handling their contributions. That’s why the 2014 GreatNonprofits Top-Rated List caught my attention. The list includes reviews of nearly 1,700 nonprofits to help donors and volunteers find worthy charities in this Season of Giving.
The Season of Giving is when most Americans donate and volunteer for nonprofits. Charitable giving topped $416 billion in 2013. In 2014, charitable giving is expected to reach over $432 billion. Additionally, one in four Americans will volunteer their time.
Unlike other charity awards, the Top-Rated award winners were selected entirely by people who have had direct experience with the nonprofit as volunteers, donors, or those who have been helped by the nonprofit.
The reviews often come in the form of inspiring stories you can find on the GreatNonprofits site, like this one about Give Kids the World, a nonprofit serving children with life-threatening diseases:
“Give Kids the World… the most beautiful place in the world to children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Our entire family went … and we will never, ever forget that wonderful, magical place or the Angels that work there. What beautiful hearts these people have, we are so thankful that we were able to experience the love that they have for these children.”
You can find more heart-warming stories on the site rating 32 issues such as animals, the environment, women’s issues, education, health, art and more. With over 5,500 city and issue pages, donors and volunteers can find charities in their cities; even right here in Santa Barbara. GreatNonprofits offers a free, easy to use website and tools that allows nonprofits to get feedback and hear the real stories of the community they serve, applying the power of crowdsourcing to the world of nonprofits.
I hope this tool featuring great nonprofits will be beneficial to anyone considering making a charitable donation in this Season of Giving.
