Selected Awards

Guidestar 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency

Living Goods has received a Guidedstar 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency for our program information and brand details.

Trinity Challenge, Third Place, 2021

The Trinity Challenge (TTC) is a coalition of 42 organisations from the private, public, philanthropic and academic sectors, working  towards protecting the world from future pandemics, by using data, analytics and digital tools. TTC was launched in September 2020, as part of global efforts to protect one billion people from health emergencies. TTC invited applications from across the world to develop and scale non-medical interventions, in areas such as data science, behavioural science, and economics, which have been areas often overlooked by current COVID-19 interventions. 

Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating, 2019–2020

Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In their quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts has examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents and then used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system (for a total of four stars) to assess over 9,000 of America’s most worthy charities. See Living Goods’ award information here.

Impact Matters 5-Star Rating

Often, nonprofits communicate only through stories, without accompanying evidence. ImpactMatters is filling this information gap with a rating system that takes explicit account of how much good the nonprofit achieves per dollar of cost. To assign impact ratings, we use publicly available information to estimate the actual impact the nonprofit’s program has on people’s life. We then compare those impact estimates to benchmarks to determine if the nonprofit is cost-effective. A nonprofit receives 5 stars if it is considered highly cost effective.

The Audacious Project, 2018

Living Goods and Last Mile Health were recognized with inaugural honorees of the Audacious Project, a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale. Together, Living Goods and Last Mile Health will provide lifesaving healthcare to 34 million people across six countries in East and West Africa by 2021 by deploying 50,000 digitally-empowered community health workers (CHWs).

Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, 2016

The Skoll Awards distinguish transformative leaders whose organizations are disrupting the status quo, driving large-scale “equilibrium” change, and are poised to create even greater impact on the world.
