MIP Score

The MIP Score is an aggregate score composed of five categories which we believe best standardizes and represents a nonprofit's ability to make an impact. Please note there are no nonprofits with a perfect MIP score.

Each individual component of the MIP Score is compared and quantiled against those of all other nonprofits in order to create the final scores you see below.
