SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – This year has been tough on everyone, and nonprofits are not immune.

USA Today reported that charities across the country expect to have donations drop 20% by this time next year.

According to charitynavigator.org, these are some of Utah’s four-star organizations for those deciding on which nonprofits to donate to this year.

In the Environment category, the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance takes the top spot. Their mission is to protect red rock country in the state.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area lands in the top spot in the Health category. This nonprofit provides temporary housing for families whose children are being treated for serious or life-threatening diseases.

In the Human and Civil Rights category, And Justice for All is a four-star nonprofit that provides legal services free of charge to those in poverty, seniors, veterans, and individuals with disabilities, among others.

Human Services is the category with the highest rated of all four-star charities in Utah. Kostopulos Dream Foundation has a perfect score. Based in Salt Lake City, the foundation sponsors recreation, education and growth experiences for people with disabilities.

Finally, in the International category, is Globus Relief. This charity is a supply chain organization, meaning it helps get medical supplies and humanitarian aid to 100 countries doing thousands of projects worldwide.
