Our Criteria

GG Rewards is GlobalGiving’s system for measuring and rewarding nonprofit commitment to learning and effectiveness. The most successful businesses and nonprofits make feedback part of everything they do. They listen to the people they intend to help. They act on what they heard, trying out new ideas and making feedback a part of every project. They learn from their results and adapt their programs and services to improve. GlobalGiving partners who Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat. can earn Effectiveness Points through GG Rewards. With every point they earn, they’re more likely to gain visibility on GlobalGiving.

GlobalGiving’s Top 10 List features 10 nonprofits that have demonstrated a commitment to impact by earning the highest quantity of Effectiveness Points. The List also includes five Honorable Mentions selected by GlobalGiving staff. The first place winner received a $1,000 grant from GlobalGiving, and the other nine and the Honorable Mentions each received $500.
