I am impressed with the vision and execution of your mission of providing tools for donors & volunteers to find, review, and analyze non-profits. I like the ability of scanning your 32 Issues categories for areas I am interested in. Clicking on your most reviewed designation, I am able to have at my fingertips some of the most popular non-profits. Browsing the various reviews and ratings within those popular charities gives me a way to validate such charities. Although I need to go to other sites to review the financial statement for the charities I want to research further, you have provided a valuable service to tens of thousands of people. I believe that such information has multiplied into unimaginable good. From a testimonial perspective, your tool has helped a charity I work with. Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance out of NJ has kept its light under the bushel for 29 years. You might imagine that a group serving tens of thousands of poor spanning 56 countries misht be well knowm. Although our 503 missionaries have known it well over the years, until your greatnonprofits.org 2013 ratings review effort that just ended, few in the world would have known that such a charity existed. This diamond hidden in the rough is getting good reviews because it has delivered 100% of donations it received to aid the poor by taking no salaries and having a founder absorb all operating costs through her sacrifice. Although our many thousands of poor could not vote without internet, you provided a life-changing tool for the world to learn. In MQAN's case, scores of missionaries found a way to give voice and hope to our poor. You have thousands of other non-profits doing good. Your information dissemination tool is surely like multiplication of the loaves. For all non-profits, a big THANKS.

Hunger Fight, Jacksonville, FL
This is a terrific organization that has just made it out of start-up status. The 2 people who founded and run the organization, Dean & Sherri Porter are the finest people you will ever want to meet. The run the organization on Christian principles and have an ever-growing population of volunteers in Jacksonville. They serve the needs of organizations who educate the hunger challenged by taking the meals that Hunger Fight packs and distributes and couple with nutritional education on what can be served with those meals.

I find it ironic that they do not post their 990s on their website. I also find it ironic as a nonprofit is is virtually impossible to speak to someone via the telephone. I would never donate to an organization that does not invite people to freely connect with it in the manner that is most comfortable for the donor/user. Shame on GreatNonprofits.

I worked with GreatNonprofits throughout the whole summer. I had a great experience and learned a little bit of everything, from marketing to research. Besides the skills I obtained through my internship, I was also able to be part of meetings with some of our funders such as The California Endowment and The California Wellness Foundation which was really exciting as I was only an intern. Through this internship, I was definitely able to get my hands wet with the nonprofit world. I worked with a team that really valued what they were doing as an organization and are really passionate about philanthropy and charity work.

Was trying to use the website to find help with any organization that might help people who are being bullied. Have to admit, for the greater Omaha area, I am really disappointed that there are no organizations that deal with this topic directly.
