TOP CHILDREN AND FAMILIES CHARITIES NAMED BY GREATNONPROFITS

More than 100 Organizations Honored Nationwide

Redwood Shores, Calif., July 1, 2012 – GreatNonprofits.org announced today that over 100 charities from more than 40 states will be receiving a Top-Rated status on the public review website based on positive user reviews.

The charities, nominated by the public, ranged from Neighbor Ride, a nonprofit helping the elderly get around by offering ridesharing, to Little Helping Hands, a resource for volunteer opportunities for young kids.  CHERUBS, another organization honored with the distinction helps expecting parents of babies who have been diagnosed in the womb with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Other charities help out pregnant moms, like The Fistula Foundation, dedicated to eradicating the pregnancy injury worldwide.

The winning results show the many aspects of child care and family life that nonprofits are involved in. The nonprofits showcased are generally smaller and less well-known – charities that may not have access to an advertising budget. “We encourage volunteers, clients served and donors to share their experience with a charity on our site to give that charity the recognition it deserves,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits.

The full list of winners of the Children and Families Top-Rated Awards can be found here.

Thank you to the Conservators’ Center for this great email about how they made use of Greatnprofits:

“For a small nonprofit, it’s a big deal to be featured as the Top Local Green Nonprofit of the Month on Huffington Post. When the GreatNonprofits campaign began we encouraged our Facebook fans to post reviews on our two pages (http://www.facebook.com/ConservatorsCenter and http://www.facebook.com/ArthurTheTiger), and added a similar request to our e-newsletter and to the thank-you email we send new visitors after their first tour of our facility. We were blown away by how many responded!
We love to hear about how  your organization is using GreatNonprofits as a resource. If you have a success story to tell, email it to Haney@greatnonprofits.org and we’ll consider it for the next newsletter.

The reviews literally brought some of our hardworking employees and volunteers to tears. More important, they highlighted what people most enjoy about the Conservators’ Center, which has helped us better refine what we do to ensure visitors walk away determined to tell others about us. Thank you for challenging us with a campaign that has brought us a lot of good!”

Mother’s Day is this Sunday (May 13.) What better time to celebrate Women’s Empowerment nonprofits? We partnered with the American Association of University Women, the National Council of Women’s Organizations, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Global Fund for Women, and Futures Without Violence to help us reach out to a wide range of groups. If you’ve benefited from, volunteered with, or donated to a organization that supports women, now is the time to support them with a review. Any organization getting ten or more positive reviews during the month of May will be a winner in the Top-Rated Women’s Empowerment Awards 2012. Click here to write a review of a great women’s nonprofit.

If you know someone working for a nonprofit that supports women, tell them about this opportunity for their organization to get recognition from supporters’ reviews.

Special thanks to our partners helping promote the Women’s Empowerment Awards 2012:
