2022 Best Nonprofits to Work For


NPTThe School Nutrition Association (SNA) was recently selected as one of the 2022 Best Nonprofits to Work For. The NonProfit Times, the leading national business publication for nonprofit managers, has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify nonprofit organizations where leaders have excelled in creating quality workplaces. 

“The past two years were incredibly challenging for all of us. But they also provided our organization with unique opportunities for innovative thinking and collaboration. We are honored to be included among the nation’s top nonprofit organizations to work for. We are very proud of the work of our team and members. And we remain committed to supporting our staff and making SNA a welcoming and thriving organization,” said SNA CEO, Patti Montague. 

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the nonprofit industry, benefiting the industry's economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 organizations.  

To be considered for participation, organizations had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements: 

  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year; 
  • Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c)(3) status; 
  • Have a facility in the United States; 
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States; and, 
  • An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary).  Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofit unless they are separate legal entities. 

Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Best Nonprofits to Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.  

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top nonprofits and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the ranking.
