Top 25 Most Influential Nonprofits in 2023 announced


Food Bank of Iowa has been voted by Business Record readers as the most influential nonprofit organization in Greater Des Moines.

Food Bank of Iowa topped the annual list of the 25 Most Influential Nonprofits that appears in the 2023 Book of Lists.

The online survey of Business Record readers, which was conducted in the summer of 2022, asked participants which nonprofit they believe is the most influential and asked them to pick nine other nonprofits that they also perceived to be influential.

The votes were tallied and IP addresses were analyzed, much as we do for Best of Des Moines, to remove suspicious voting and obvious attempts to fraudulently influence rankings.

The Business Record also released its list of the Top 25 Most Influential Business Leaders. View them here
