GreatNonprofits announced today that 122 organizations have qualified for the 2011 Top-Rated Health Nonprofits List at the close of a month-long campaign in partnership with GuideStar and Charity Navigator. Organizations receiving ten or more positive stakeholder reviews during the month of June qualified for the top-rated list.
During the campaign, a total of 369 nonprofits were rated and reviewed by thousands of clients, donors and volunteers across the country. The 2,800 reviews submitted during the campaign highlight the innovative ways that health organizations are supporting their communities. The Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors (AOH), a nonprofit providing healing support to people coping with the loss of a loved one to suicide, received 111 reviews in just a week.
“In many dark hours I have gained comfort, hope, support and validation from other suicide survivors as they share their journey, shared lluvryan, a client of AOH. “Many times, I have been able to make it another day because of the many posts and the kind of support available.
“We are thrilled to be a top-rated health nonprofit. The outpouring of gratitude expressed in our reviews reaffirms the difference we’re making, and inspires us to want to do more, said Ronnie Walker, founder of the Alliance of Hope.
The organizations represented on the top-rated list focus on a diverse range of health services. From seeking a cure for devastating diseases to raising public awareness about important health issues, these organizations speak to the important role nonprofits play in the health field.
Qualifying as a top-rated nonprofit provides essential feedback to the nonprofits, and can result increased visibility for the organization’s work. Brian Brewer, Director of Marketing and Communications at Cancer Research Institute explains, “[GreatNonprofits.org] is easy for our community members to use, and that’s made it easy for us to get their great feedback about the impact our programs have. It’s been such a great experience reading all the positive, thoughtful stories our donors, scientists, and cancer patients have posted on your site ”it reaffirms for all the hardworking staff at CRI that what they do matters.
