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:
Obstetric fistula is a devastating childbirth injury that leaves women incontinent, humiliated, and—all too often—shunned by their community. Surgery is the only cure. Today, at least one million women in Africa and Asia needlessly suffer from untreated fistula. The Fistula Foundation directs funds from donors around the globe to doctors and hospitals so that they can perform life-transforming surgeries in these areas of high unmet need. To date, the Fistula Foundation provides more surgeries to more women than any other organization, including the U.S. government and United Nations.
