Score Breakdown

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.

Financial Strength

This score represents a nonprofit's ability to stay financially strong in order to have long-term impact. Nonprofits with stronger financials and better cash management will have stronger scores.
