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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

With respect to your greatnonprofits.org system: 1. See what the problem is with your security code system. Sending a messageto your Contact Us method was virtually impossible. Each attempt was followed by a new code of letters &/or numbers & your user ends up in a frustrating loop.An email address might be a solution. 2. In the individual issue categories you note "TOTAL" such as 20,417 for International. Is this the number of non-profits?

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

Life-changing

How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?

Definitely

How do you feel you were treated by this organization?

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get better links to key word searches for the local area.
