Money's List of Best Places to Live

Each year, Money Magazine publishes a list of the Best Places to Live. We thought it would be interesting to look at some of the charities located near the winning cities.

Top Small Towns
  1. 4-star rated Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, Flatirons Habitat for Humanity and Western Resource Advocates are among the 15 charities rated by Charity Navigator that are located near the #1 Best Place to Live, Louisville, CO.
  2. Chanhassen, MN, voted 2nd Best Place to Live, is home to 4-star charities Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners and Children's HeartLink.
  3. Charity Navigator rates 20 charities that are within a few miles of #3 Papillion, NE, including 4-star charities Omaha Symphony and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska.
Best Towns for the Rich and Single
  1. 4-star charities Santa Monica Baykeeper and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network are two of the 11 charities we rate that are located near Hermosa Beach, CA which earned the distinction as the #1 best place for the rich and single.
