Beth,

Thanks for the mention of GreatNonprofits! And we came about precisely for the reason that you mention - people are trying to find good nonprofits to donate or volunteer for. We decided that this problem is similar to those faced by us in other aspects of our life - how do we decide which new restaurant to try or what new book to buy? And the answer is that for many of us, we look to reviews on Amazon or on Zagats.

We're trying to do the same for the nonprofit sector. We're giving potential donors and volunteers with authentic, real, and personal stories about these nonprofits. It's a great due diligence tool, but also an incredible way for nonprofits - especially small local nonprofits who have little money and marketing resources - to raise their visibility. All they need to do is to ask people who know their work to write a review about them. It's free and simple to write a review and simple to read the reviews.

It's not a replacement for any of the other great sites you mention - but a complement which could encourage more confidence in giving to or volunteering at a nonprofit.
