GreatNonprofits, GuideStar, and Charity Navigator announce the launch of the 2011 GreatNonprofits Health Campaign to identify top-rated organizations working to improve the health of our communities.
GreatNonprofits is the leading provider of user-generated ratings and reviews of nonprofits.
Partners in the campaign, which will run for the month of June, include the GuideStar, the leading source of philanthropic information on the Internet, and Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator.
Any health nonprofit has at least 10 positive reviews by June 30, 2011 will be recognized on the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Health Nonprofits List. In the first few days of the campaign, more than 50 organizations have already been reviewed.
“So many wonderful nonprofit organizations are working to improve the health of our communities, said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “This campaign is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on their important work.
Participants in the campaign can expect to receive increased exposure to donors and volunteers and increased visibility in their communities and the media.
The user reviews gathered by GreatNonprofits are written by anyone with personal experience with a nonprofit, i.e., a donor, volunteer, board member, client, or member of the public.
Over the past year more than 1 million people visited GreatNonprofits to read and write these reviews.
About the Campaign
The health campaign will run throughout the month of June. Reviews appear on GreatNonprofits.org, GuideStar.org and CharityNavigator.org and can be written on all three sites. Nonprofits with 10 or more positive reviews will be included on the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Health Nonprofits List. Review submissions must take place from June 1st through June 30th, 2011.

GreatNonprofits today announced that 125 providing essential services to children and families across the country have qualified for the 2011 Top-Rated Children & Families Nonprofits List based on user reviews submitted during a national campaign in April.
The reviews were posted as part of the 2011 GreatNonprofits Children & Families, conducted in partnership with GuideStar and the Alliance for Children and Families.
Over the course of the campaign, more than 190,000 people visited the GreatNonprofits site to read and write reviews. A total of 407 nonprofit organizations were rated and reviewed by stakeholders. In the process, a total of 2,662 new user reviews were gathered. All the organizations on the top-rated list received ten or more positive reviews.
During the month of April, thousands of reviewers helped tell the story of how these organizations strengthen our communities by supporting and empowering children and families. Among the nonprofits making the top-rated list is Lincoln Child Center, an organization working to enable vulnerable and emotionally troubled children and their families to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
“Lincoln Child Center has been a leader in helping disadvantaged and disenfranchised communities for 128 years and will continue to provide critical services to those that need them. During the process of gathering reviews for GreatNonprofits, we were able to really take a deep look at what people think of us and the services we provide. GreatNonprofits provided a user friendly platform to receive that feedback and also allowed us to really have peoples voices be heard.”
“Big Brothers Big Sisters holds itself accountable for helping children mentored in our organization achieve academic success; avoid risky behaviors; and have higher aspirations and self confidence,” added top-rated Big Brothers Big Sisters of America’s President and CEO Karen J. Mathis. ”The greatnonprofits.org reviews are consistent with independent studies that support these measurable outcomes.”
