DO NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU READ ON THIS SITE. Great Nonprofits deletes reviews that the NGO does not believe are favorable. The delete reviews that are honest and truthful, while leaving reviews that they know are lies. The organize the reviews via a title called ‘featured reviews’. In doing so they deceive the potential donor and deny him/her from finding out the truth about these NGOs.

Do you really believe that sites receive 150-5 star reviews and never received anything other than 5 star/ Haha!

Most of the ‘top rated’ NGOs pay Great NonProfits to keep their reviews ‘clean’. Look deep and look further that this site to evaluate an NGO. Investigate before you generously give up your hard earned money. Great NonProfits partners with NGOs, which make it difficult to find the facts. The deck is stacked against you. They allow the NGOs logo and and an advertisement from each NGO. That should tell you a LOT!!

I am a rheumatologist in the San Francisco Bay Area and have worked with the LFNC since I was a fellow in 1986. Initially, I only used the organization to refer my patients for informative materials and support groups. Later when I became a faculty member at Stanford, I became a speaker for the annual Lupus meeting for many years. For more than a decade that I have been in private practice, I have been a reviewer of articles for the news magazine. The LFNC chapter has been a tremendous resource for my patients and I refer my lupus patients to the organization routinely. R. Elaine Lambert, M.D. Overall rating above expectations
