Our Top-Rated Nonprofit List Aims to Honor High-Impact Local Charities
GreatNonprofits is proud to annouce the 1,386 winners of the 2012 Top-Rated Awards.The awards aim to bring to light excellent charities, often small and local, doing the most good.
Unlike other charity awards, the Top-Rated award winners were selected entirely by the public. Nominees were ‘judged’ solely on reviews written by the public—by volunteers, donors and people helped by the nonprofit. This way, the charities also get valuable feedback from the public.
The reviews often come in the form of inspiring stories, like this one from Cincinnati, OH:
“Three months ago I was confused and scared, knowing there was something wrong with my lungs, but not having any idea what. I looked…on the internet and found all kinds of scary information, but I also found the LAM Foundation. I contacted them… and the Patient Services Director responded to me within hours. Since then she has helped me find information, doctors, and other women with LAM to connect with.”
