Earlier this week, MSNBC posted a list of charities still involved in Haitian earthquake recovery efforts, compiled by the American Institute of Philanthropy, a leading charity watchdog. AIP issues letter grade (A+ to F) ratings of nonprofit groups; the following charities involved in Haiti relief received an “A” or “B” grade based on the portion of their budget going to program services and their fundraising efficiency.
Last year, most donations via this comm went to UNICEF, Partners in Health, The Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders, with substantial donations going to the Clinton/Bush project, Yele, Heifer International and Oxfam as well.
We are sharing the urls and phone numbers with you in case you can do something in 2011 to help Haiti.
And just as a reminder, help_chile still has links to organizations rebuilding after Chile's earthquake last year, and help_pakistan has links to organizations rebuilding after their massive floods. If you have a link to a comm that is fundraising to help those currently suffering in Australia, or to help with their eventual rebuilding, please share them in the comments. ETA: We've been told that fandom_flood_ap is coming soon, and , qldfloodauction, waltzmatildah and owemebreakfast are already fundraising as well, to help Australians recover from those floods. More links may be added overnight, but I'm going to sleep and will add them tomorrow....
To all of you, thank you for all you've done to help those around the world, and may you have a safe and beautiful 2011.
