Most Trusted Nonprofit Awarded to Medical Ambassadors International
MinistryVoice decided that there should be a directory of the most trusted Christian nonprofits for donors concerned about their gifts being put to good use. So, they created one. After hours of research, they sorted through thousands of nonprofits eligible to be on this list. Out of the thousands of eligible nonprofits, only 92 passed the most thorough nonprofit criteria to win the Most Trusted Nonprofit Award. Every nonprofit on this list meets hundreds of unique performance and efficiency metrics, analyzing every aspect of a nonprofit’s operations, financial accountability, transparency, mission, employment practices, public opinion and more.
Medical Ambassadors International made the list! They tell us they didn’t put this list together lightly. We consider it an honor to be included among the top 92 most trusted nonprofits!
