MinistryWatch Names Shining Light Ministries for 2021

Each month, MinistryWatch.com publishes lists of interest to donors and non-profit executives.  But once each year we publish a very special list, a list of what we call our “Shining Lights.” The Bible says we are to let our lights shine so that others may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.  (Matthew 5:16)  These ministries do just that.

To become a MinistryWatch “Shining Light,” a ministry must have earned a 5-star rating on MinistryWatch’s 5-star Financial Efficiency rating, and must receive an “A” Transparency Grade.  That narrows down the list of more than 1000 ministries in our database to about 60.  Those ministries are listed below.
