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.
Check out the 11 winners for 2023 below:
Crisis Text Line
No matter what crisis a person is facing, they can text HOME to 741741 at any time, from anywhere in the United States, and the Crisis Text Line will match them to a trained volunteer counselor to respond from a secure online platform usually within five minutes or less. The conversation only ends when both agree that the caller is in a “cool,” safe place. Human connection is fostered with a scalable, high-quality and low-cost solution that meets people where they are.
