Humanity Road, Inc. Rated 2015 Top Nonprofit
GreatNonprofits focuses on helping people make great giving decisions through socially sourced feedback and reviews. —Bill Gates, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Microsoft
The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Award is the only people's choice award in the nonprofit sector and is based on a large number of public reviews written by donors and volunteers. One reviewer wrote "As an expert in (humanitarian aid and disaster response) HADR radio communications I truly understand the power of swift and clear communications. Humanity Road is one of the most inspiring and relevant non profits that exist in this sector today. Their obvious passion for helping people during the humanitarian disasters is equal only to the extraordinary results they achieve when they deploy. The aggregated data that is collected via the various sources of social media they analyse helps guide the big organisations more efficiently in helping the affected people. However, they also live and die by the adage that they must always keep the human in humanitarian relief; it may all be online but it’s always more about the people."
Another reviewer shared “My team worked closely with Humanity Road after the earthquake in Nepal, particularly to operate Quakemap.org. Humanity Road helped us to collect, verify, and process reports coming to the Quakemap platform. Quakemap was used as one of the key information sources in Nepal's earthquake response and relief work”.
“In addition to the GreatNonprofits award, Humanity Road is among only 2% that have earned the Guidestar Gold rating out of 1.8 million nonprofit members in Guidestar” said Cindy Becker, Fundraising Team Lead for Humanity Road. GuideStar is the world's largest source of information on nonprofit organizations and helps shine the light on nonprofits that are committed to transparency and accountability.”
“Today we are working in South Carolina, responding to flooding, and helping citizens get connected to aid” says Ms. Becker. “Transparency is important in today’s disaster response world. We are committed to verifying and freely sharing information to help people and animals impacted by disasters.”
