Finally - a way to gain feedback from the people who interact with a nonprofit! GreatNonProfits.org solves provides solutions in so many ways -- (1) listening to those served by a nonprofit's services or products, (2) helping volunteers and staff find a great place to work, and (3) assisting donors with a truthful look at the good and the bad. Each of these is a breakthrough on its own. So glad that GNP is growing fast - this sector needs more information, more ratings and more two-way communications that are honest, direct and spur ideas for efficiency as well as effectiveness. Bravo!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Scores less than 5 stars - for someone to not rate a perfect score for a non-profit is real progress.

Ways to make it better...

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

Design a competition that rewarded the most honest feedback - a la "wisdom of the crowd." To be clear, not the best score, but the most accurate -- like Mo Ibrahim's contest for African leaders to be transparent and truthful.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learning about new and diverse organizations, that have all levels of impact, and seeing the photos of the participants - it's like a free tour of optimism and tenacity to improve your life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Entrepreneurial, honest, truthful, and seeking to learn.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be the JD Power, ePininons or Yelp of the social sector!

Ways to make it better...

As with any new idea, attracting user input to build a critical mass is a core goal. If existing investors like foundations and individuals would participate, then all the knowledge learned so far could be shared.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The typical human concerrn to not say something negative about a service that delivers good. Sharing openly about experiences good and bad will help everyone get better. But, also need to be crafty about how not to scare away those readers who want a fast, easy answer.

One thing I'd also say is that...

GreatNonProfits.org provides more information about a very diverse group of social organizations that benefit society -- it will help find the best ways to improve life and increase high-impact donations.

I LOVE this organization. Both the idea of having independent, transparent reviews of nonprofits, and the tool itself. Great Nonprofits is well thought out and easy to use. I know from my own work in the nonprofit sector that it is really hard to get objective information on how a nonprofit or its projects are actually performing without investing in lots of research. This is one simple way of capturing that information, that leverages a trend of greater openness. It is an idea and organization whose time has come!!!

The Great!
