Great nonprofits appears to be a politically-motivated group pretending to be a dispassionate, non-partisan charity monitor. The first review received by several very well run conservative groups appear to be merely hit pieces. One on Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, for example, says the group should lose its tax-exempt status just because it doesn't agree with the global warming orthodoxy. It's donors sure know already about its writings on the topic and the suggestion that the group should lose its tax-exempt status borders on libel. After reviewing Greatnonprofit's funding sources, it appears this could be by design. The funders are a veritable Who's Who of left-wing environmental funders... W.K. Kellogg, Hewlett and others. This group has no credibility whatsoever.

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

Learning about its funding sources, which gives a pretty good idea of its political leanings... and it is very much to the ideological left.

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

None.

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

...Harm the reputation of other great organizations

Ways to make it better...

The reviews I saw were fair. Every nutty left-wing group receives positive reviews while all the ones that are right of center with which I'm familiar received negative ones.

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

Losing credibility because of anonymous, astroturf reviews that are orchestrated from groups with axes to grind.

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

If greatnonprofits wants to be a credible charity monitor, it should disclose all its sources of funding and the amounts. It should also post the grant proposals sent to these funders so that the public can see what the donors thought they were getting.
