About.com, an online information and resource site, has selected its top 20 HIV/AIDS charities for 2014. The criteria included: spending at least 75 percent of their budgets on programs, raising $100 from every $15 spent fundraising, not holding more than three years of available assets in reserve, and operating with financial transparency.

In 2013, the list was restricted to groups whose only mission was HIV/AIDS. This year the criteria for the list expanded to include groups whose missions have expanded, but nonetheless emerged from the early HIV/AIDS epidemic and continue to actively serve people living with the virus. As a result, six new groups are on the list.

Here are the 2014 groups in alphabetical order: Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center; AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC); AIDS Foundation Houston; AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA); AIDS United; American Foundation for Children with AIDS; amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research; Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA); Cascade AIDS Project; Desert AIDS Project; Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF); Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF); Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC); God’s Love We Deliver (GLWD); International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI); Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation; Project Inform; San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF); Treatment Action Group (TAG); and Whitman-Walker Health (WWH).
