Direct Relief International
January 13, 2012
Full disclaimer - I worked at Direct Relief for a few years. So, while I may maintain some sort of bias, I also know the organization from the inside out. Having worked there, I can say with confidence that I can't imagine a smarter, more ethical group of people than those at Direct Relief - people who on a daily basis work to get medicine to people who need it, and who serve as responsible stewards of donor money. I'm involved with a number of non-profits, but I'd give my highest rating to Direct Relief, and it's the one I donate to.

What is unique about this organization?
They don't spend donor money on advertising or fancy offices (they're in a warehouse by the railroad tracks in an industrial zone). They instead commit 100% of every donated dollar to programmatic work.
