Meet the 11 outstanding nonprofits that took home this year’s Classy Awards
Each organization has gone above and beyond to make our world a better place.
Since 2009, the Classy Awards have celebrated nonprofits for their unique approaches to making our world a better place for everyone. Winners are given a platform to amplify their cause and showcase the positive impact of their programs.
This year, we are proud to announce that the Classy Awards have partnered with Upworthy, and we are thrilled to shine a spotlight on the 2023 winners.
From championing gender equality, to massively reducing food waste, to providing trade-based skills training to the neurodivergent community, each organization has made an incredible contribution to the betterment of our world.
Collectively through their efforts, nearly 1.5 million people and animals were served across 34 countries worldwide last year alone. That’s a win in itself.

Animal Rescue League of Boston
The Animal Rescue League of Boston is an unwavering champion for animals in need, committed to keeping them out of shelters and in happy homes with people who love them. Its Wellness Waggin’ program is a mobile vet clinic that provides low-cost wellness exams for owned pets, serving those who may not otherwise have access to a veterinarian due to challenges with location, income, inflexible work schedules and language barriers. It also aims to provide animals with preventative care, in the hopes that it decreases the need for emergency care in the future (which could lead to surrender or euthanasia).In 2022, Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Wellness Waggin’ program served 4,103 animals.
