Philanthropedia (at GuideStar) is a nonprofit organization working to help donors make smarter donations by connecting them with some of the highest impact nonprofits in a cause. They are different from other online rating sites or donation sites because they use experts to identify high-impact nonprofits.

All the information collected from the research is available on Philanthropedia’s website and will shortly be available on GuideStar Take Action’s website.

In addition, MTPC’s big sister organization and our fiscal sponsor, Boston Alliance for GLBT Youth (BAGLY Inc) was ranked # 1 in the same category. As you can see the apple does not fall far from the tree! MTPC also wished to congratulate trans-sister organizations the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and Transgender Law Center (TLC), and our Trans Equal Rights Coalition partner organizations Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD), and MassEquality for their recognition in high impact LGBT non-profits rankings as well.
