October 30, 2020

For Immediate Release:


Award based on outstanding online reviews

San Diego, CA (11/3/20) – Plant With Purpose announced today it has been named a “2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.

Plant With Purpose provides holistic international development in Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia, resulting in environmental restoration, economic empowerment, and spiritual renewal. 

“We are honored to be named a 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Scott Sabin, CEO. “We are proud of our partners' accomplishments this year, including building resilience throughout the pandemic, planting over five million trees, and building over $5 million in savings."

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Plant With Purpose received from volunteers, donors, and aid recipients. "I'm happy to support Plant With Purpose because this org[anization] addresses three areas that mutually reinforce each other," says supporter Liston Rice. "I'm especially happy that this org[anization] is committed not to giving and leaving but instead to teaching, training, and walking with the communities it partners with over the course of years. That partnership gives communities space to develop their own talents and resources, meaning when the partnership ends, the community will continue to thrive using their own skills and resources."

“Plant With Purpose is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” says Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Plant With Purpose.”

GreatNonprofits is the leading website where people share stories about their personal experiences with over 1.6 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities – as donors, volunteers, and recipients of aid.
