People want to help others, and that often means getting involved somehow with nonprofits. We want to find effective ones, and avoid the questionable ones.

It helps to find user reviews of nonprofits.

This review is self referential, in part, to get the word out better. GreatNonprofits does a really useful and good job, and more people need to hear about it.

GreatNonprofits is is great service for nonprofits of all sizes and walks of life. They are like the "Yelp for nonprofits". Folks can rate nonprofits and share their personal experience, so that others can learn about them from more than just the staff and marketing materials.

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

Perla Ni and her team work hard to make sure people who have had an experience with a nonprofit (e.g. volunteer, donor, board member, etc.) can share it with others, inspiring others to get involved and do something.

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

help them spread the word to get more people writing reviews and sharing their experiences.

I've served on the board of this remarkable organization almost since its inception. Founder Perla Ni is an inspiration, and the organization's mission is close to my heart: offering a viable alternative to the financially-based evaluations of nonprofit effectiveness from the self-appointed watchdog organizations.

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

reading comments from nonprofit executives that testify to the usefulness of reviews posted on GreatNonprofits -- in fundraising, in strengthening staff and board morale, and in gaining wider recognition for their work

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

if I had it, give $10 million
