There are thousands of great nonprofits, but do you ever wonder which nonprofit organizations get the most traction?

To scratch our own itch, we put the time into creating the world’s top 100 nonprofit organizations list covering a whole range of missions from international development, animal welfare, to museums. We wanted the list to be objective and based on publicly available web, social, and fiscal responsibility metrics.

For an explanation of how the rankings are computed, scroll down past the list. Notes: Colleges, universities, and individual churches are not included on this list.
