ThatHelps has created a proprietary methodology that vets organizations based on quantitative and qualitative factors to determine those doing the most meaningful work worthy of support.

Our vetting model assesses the efficacy and impact made by non-profit organizations through extensive reviews of quantitative materials like annual reports, operations, and financial rankings from sources including Guidestar, Better Business Bureau, the Wise Giving Alliance, and Charity Navigator. We examine each nonprofit’s effectiveness and transparency with regard to fundraising efforts, tax and income filings, executive compensation and administrative expenses. Each category is dynamically weighted to provide a holistic view of the organization’s overall success and durability.

This is combined with qualitative aspects of an organization, such as their reputation in the industry, media and news reports, celebrity and influencer endorsements, volunteer feedback, testimonials, and impact stories.

Only the nonprofits that continue to meet or exceed our rigorous criteria are included on the ThatHelps website and app.
