Good Housekeeping magazine recognizes Convoy of Hope

Convoy of Hope is honored to be listed on Good Housekeeping’s “The 50 Best Charities to Give to Right Now.” Good Housekeeping recognized Convoy of Hope for our fight against the pandemic’s effects and included us in the “COVID-19 Relief” section of their list.

Placement on this list is contingent upon good standing with Charity Watch and Charity Navigator, watchdog sites that investigate charities and rate them based on aspects like financial health and transparency.

Convoy of Hope has been blessed to receive Charity Navigator’s top rating for the past 17 years, and was recently included on the Forbes list of top 100 charities.

We are humbled by the praise these publications have given us and are excited to see how this recognition will help us deliver even more hope to vulnerable communities around the world.

Forbes Ranks Convoy of Hope in Top 100 Charities

Convoy of Hope is thrilled to announce that we have been included on Forbes’ 2020 list of “America’s Top Charities”!

With more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the United States, it’s a huge honor for us to be ranked among the top 100. In 2019, Convoy of Hope ranked 82nd on this list. Since then, we have increased our standing to 75th.

Forbes assesses nonprofit organizations based on charitable commitment and fundraising efficiency. Convoy of Hope received high marks in both categories.

This news came shortly after Good Housekeeping included Convoy of Hope in their “The 50 Best Charities to Give to Right Now” list.

The recognition we receive from publications like Forbes and Good Housekeeping is a direct result of those who actively choose to join us in our mission. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of those who need hope the most.

You Made Hope Happen on Giving Tuesday

People all over the world rallied around Convoy of Hope yesterday for Giving Tuesday. Because of their generosity, we can keep serving people with experiences like these:

“COVID-19 knocked us down. I’m an essential worker, a CNA. This is awesome! Anything right now will help.” —Anonymous, served at a Community Event

“Thank you to the people who make it possible that this food comes to our table and

help me grow and develop eating delicious food!” —Alejandro, a child in our Children’s Feeding program

“I use a lot of the services, but Convoy [of Hope], it’s one of the most understanding and respectful organizations. They treat you like a person — like you’re just another person that deserves something. They don’t look down on you. They don’t treat you different.” —Carly, served at a Community Event

“I am happy because I know now that I am able. Now, instead of me begging to people for help, people come to me.” —Julie, enrolled in Women’s Empowerment 

“I just wanted to share with you guys how important what you’re doing out here is. You’re saving lives out here. You’re giving opportunities for people out in the community who don’t have the financial means to be able to do things like that.” —Mandy, served at a Community Event

“This is the new standard to which we want to uphold other NGOs involved in school-based feeding programs.” —Tanzanian Government official, about Children’s Feeding

“Before, I would beg even for clothes to put on my children. Now, I buy them good clothes.” —Selam, enrolled in Women’s Empowerment

As a parent, it is nice because your kids are happier that they have the things they need to start the year off with.” —Denice, served at a Community Event

The generosity of others enables us to help those in need. Yesterday was proof that we can accomplish so much more together than we ever could alone.
