Massachusetts Top Under the Radar Charities:  Introduction

In 2017 US News and World Report Ranked Massachusetts the top state in the US based on a variety of factors including education, economy, crime rates, and overall opportunity.

As residents of Massachusetts, we wholeheartedly agree!

The Bay State is also home to some of the largest nonprofit organizations in the country.  Giants like Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard achieve great social missions while employing thousands and driving billions in commerce and revenue for the Massachusetts.

Events like the Pan-Mass Challenge and the Rodman Ride for Kids are some of leading Peer-to-Peer fundraising events in the country.

But Massachusetts’ nonprofit impact goes beyond just the heavy hitters.  There are many amazing smaller organizations making a lasting impact in their communities and they deserve recognition.

In the coming weeks we will post a series to highlight these “under the radar” Massachusetts charities that are helping kids in foster care find their permanent homes, keeping our beaches clean, and caring for ALS patients.

If you think your charity should be recognized, let us know on twitter @blueskycollab or on Facebook.
