2015 Top-Rated US Charities List Published
Donors get inspired and informed this Season of Giving
Redwood City, November 2, 2015
GreatNonprofits, the largest site for nonprofit stories and reviews announced today the 2015 Top-Rated Nonprofit List. The Top-Rated List of 1,417 nonprofits helps donors and volunteers find the best charities this Season of Giving. The end of year is when most Americans donate and volunteer for nonprofits. Donations surpassed $456 billion in 2014.
Unlike other charity awards, the Top-Rated award winners were selected solely by people who have had involvement with the nonprofit as volunteers, donors, or those who have been helped by the nonprofit.
“This is the people’s awards for nonprofits.” says founder and CEO, Perla Ni. “These are top nonprofits, as nominated by people in those communities who see the work of these nonprofits on the ground.”
One of the top-rated nonprofits is Aim High, a charter high school in San Francisco for low-income children. They were nominated by one of their students who wrote, “Attending Aim High was one of the best decisions I had ever made in my life. I am who I am because of this program. In middle school, I was very behind in terms of my math skills, and had always hated math… If it weren’t for the great teachers at Aim High, my middle school math skills would be non-existent. I learned all my M.S. math skills from Aim High teachers. Also, my teachers actually cared. When I was upset due to something from home or from school, they were always there for me and so were my friends.”
Other top-rated nonprofits include Neighbor Ride, which provides affordable rides for the elderly or Solutions for Change, which provides housing, food and childcare for homeless families.
The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated List inspires people to donate or volunteer this Season of Giving. Ni says, “Most people are not aware of terrific nonprofits near them. If you think education is important, if you love animals, or you enjoy nature, or you are passionate about social justice, or you just want to do something near you , you can find some great nonprofits to give or volunteer with.”
The top-rated nonprofits span over 37 issues such as animals, the environment, women’s issues, education, human services, art and more. With over 25,000 city and issue pages, donors and volunteers can find charities in their cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., San Diego, Houston, Chicago, and San Francisco or even suburbs like San Mateo, California.
