Americans want to know which charities they can provide their time, money and effort to with confidence.
GreatNonprofits has named the nation's Top-Rated Charities for 2016 - these charities have been selected for earning the highest ratings for helping those in need.
There are more than 1.5 million charities and nonprofits in the U.S., according to the National Center for Charitable Statistics. GreatNonprofits is the leading website for people to find, review and share information about nonprofits, including personal stories about the charity's work. GreatNonprofits' Giving Stories provides powerful stories of personal transformation from people involved with specific charities.
The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards name the best charities in 47 categories, such as animals, children, disaster aid, homelessness, veterans, and women's issues. They are the only top ratings determined by people who deal directly with the charities - as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid.
The complete list of 2016 Top-Rated Charities can be found at www.greatnonprofits.org. The list can be searched by name, location or issue to find the best charity - in either your community or nationally - for donating your time or money, or for seeking assistance.
GreatNonprofits is the leading website for people to find, review and share information about nonprofits. More than 1.2 million different charities, their reviews, ratings and personal stories about their work, are searchable by issue and location. The GreatNonprofits seal is rated by Software Advice, a Gartner company, as the second most-trusted rating seal after the Better Business Bureau. GreatNonprofits also provides tools and services to help nonprofits share and collect reviews and stories about the communities they serve.
