San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2016
As the holiday giving season approaches, 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 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.
“With the Top-Rated Charities list, people can easily see which charities are making a real difference in the communities and issues they serve,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “People are inspired and informed by the list, which shares amazing personal stories from the people who know these charities the best. GreatNonprofits empowers people to share their experiences and help others find the best charities – whether they wish to donate, volunteer or know someone trying to find help.”
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 Top-Rated Awards are the only top ratings determined by those who deal directly with the charities – as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid. The GreatNonprofits seal is rated by Software Advice, a Gartner company, as the second most-trusted rating seal after the Better Business Bureau.
