I am impressed with the vision and execution of your mission of providing tools for donors & volunteers to find, review, and analyze non-profits. I like the ability of scanning your 32 Issues categories for areas I am interested in. Clicking on your most reviewed designation, I am able to have at my fingertips some of the most popular non-profits. Browsing the various reviews and ratings within those popular charities gives me a way to validate such charities. Although I need to go to other sites to review the financial statement for the charities I want to research further, you have provided a valuable service to tens of thousands of people. I believe that such information has multiplied into unimaginable good. From a testimonial perspective, your tool has helped a charity I work with. Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance out of NJ has kept its light under the bushel for 29 years. You might imagine that a group serving tens of thousands of poor spanning 56 countries misht be well knowm. Although our 503 missionaries have known it well over the years, until your greatnonprofits.org 2013 ratings review effort that just ended, few in the world would have known that such a charity existed. This diamond hidden in the rough is getting good reviews because it has delivered 100% of donations it received to aid the poor by taking no salaries and having a founder absorb all operating costs through her sacrifice. Although our many thousands of poor could not vote without internet, you provided a life-changing tool for the world to learn. In MQAN's case, scores of missionaries found a way to give voice and hope to our poor. You have thousands of other non-profits doing good. Your information dissemination tool is surely like multiplication of the loaves. For all non-profits, a big THANKS.

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 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.
