GreatNonprofits announced today that 29 organizations have qualified for the 2011 Top-Rated Social Justice Nonprofit List at the close of a month-long campaign in partnership with Alliance for Justice, The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, EarthRights International, FreePress, Global Fund for Women, Equality Now, and Third Goal. Organizations receiving ten or more positive stakeholder reviews during the month of July qualified for the top-rated list.
During the campaign, a total of 125 nonprofits were rated and reviewed by thousands of clients, donors and volunteers across the country. The 668 reviews submitted during the campaign highlight the innovative ways that social justice organizations are changing the world. Alliance for Justice, a coalition of more than 100 organizations devoted to ensuring equality for all members of society, finished the campaign with a perfect 5-star rating as one of our partners.
“The Alliance for Justice is an unparalleled resource for the non-profit community, said client served and reviewer Paul S. of Alliance for Justice. “AfJ provides the expert assistance and advice that enables non-profits to provide a voice for their clients in government circles, while scrupulously complying with all legal requirements.
All of the qualifying organizations have show the vast ways in which nonprofits can help protect and advance the human rights and social justice initiatives worldwide. User reviews of personal experiences and examples also help nonprofits ensure they’re working in the right direction.
“One of the most exciting things for us about participating in the GreatNonprofits Social Justice Campaign has been interacting with some of the people who benefit from our services and getting feedback from them, Amy Conroy, Director of Development at Alliance for Justice explains. “The third party review platform not only allowed people and organizations who we may not have otherwise heard from to voice an opinion, but it allowed us to respond by commenting on individual reviews.
The campaign also provided organizations with the ability to view site traffic for the month and expand lines of communication. “We are so pleased that we have been able to receive some great reviews ”full of valuable feedback ”from our allies, activists, and supporters. I really like the feature that allows me to see how many views our profile has received! We’ve received well over 900 views this month! says Sara Longsmith of FreePress.
