In the midst of the giving season, the Chronicle of Philanthropy released their list of America's Favorite Charities and the United Way took top honors with a #1 ranking on the list according to a press release from the United Way.  Two of the top philanthropy trade media publications have released their annual rankings of America’s charities: both the Chronicle of Philanthropy and the NonProfit Times’ put the United Way in their lists of best charities.  NPT 2019 Top 100 shows that the United Way is #1 in public support. Revenue generated is the key ingredient for the rankings.

The top ranking for the United Way seems to signify that those that donate to this community based non-profit organization, want to support their local community and those in need.
