2022 Top-Rated Awards

Here we are, wending our way through another Autumn. We may be admiring the colorful leaves, bundling up during cold mornings, or preparing for fun-filled holiday celebrations. This time of year brings another exciting milestone: the release of the 2022 Top-Rated Nonprofits.

GreatNonprofits is thrilled to congratulate all of the amazing charities who achieved top-rated status by being positively rated by their communities this year.

2022 Top-Rated Award Winner Highlights

What are the Top-Rated Awards?

Each year we honor nonprofits that demonstrate positive impact in their communities through firsthand ratings and reviews. Unlike other charity awards, the Top-Rated winners are selected entirely by people with direct experience with the organization – as volunteers, donors, or those who have been helped.

About the 2022 Top-Rated Nonprofits

This year’s Top-Rated list is the largest on record, with over 2500 organizations achieving Top-Rated status and earning the right to display the coveted GreatNonprofits Top-Rated badge on their websites and profiles.

Every state in the USA is represented in this year’s list, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. There is a nice distribution of top-rated nonprofits across major regions of the country, with the largest percentage located in the South and the West.

The 2022 Top-Rated Nonprofits span 47 cause categories, the largest groups focused on animals, children & youth, education, and health & human services. Interestingly, there was significant growth in a few specific causes, including job training, veterans, and the environment. These issues reflect the biggest concerns facing our communities right now and demonstrate how the nonprofit sector is stepping up to tackle these critical challenges.

Supporting Top-Rated Nonprofits

GreatNonprofits is laser-focused on helping nonprofits engage with donors through effective community storytelling. Millions of dollars each year are donated to charities across the country via the GreatNonprofits platform and a large portion of this money comes in during the giving season at the end of the year.

Donors need resources like the Top-Rated Guide more than ever to make smart decisions about which organizations to support. 

  • Individual givers at any level can get inspired and informed about the organizations making a difference for the causes they care about. 
  • Companies looking to encourage employee giving and volunteering can also use this list to enable engagement.
