Comments (5) April 10, 2013

Your online reputation means a lot. Studies show that online reviews play into whether or not a donor decides to give. And who among us hasn’t checked out a restaurant review before deciding to make a reservation? All the more reason to ask your constituents to review you. Who better to tell your story than your volunteers, clients and donors?

Get rewarded for your great reviews.

Now is the time to enter the 2013 Top-Rated Awards. Let new donors find your great reviews on GreatNonprofits! Any nonprofit in the country can enter the Top-Rated Awards, but fewer than 1% become eligible for the honor. Will you be one of the elite?

Our winners get the opportunity at great prizes this year, we’ll be giving away trips to mingle with leaders in philanthropy and technology at our annual Technology for Social Good event in Silicon Valley and online promotion worth $20,000. All winners also get a 2013 Top-Rated Badge to add to your website, marketing materials, annual reports and grant proposals to demonstrate your credibility to donors and funders. Your badge will also automatically show on your profile page on GreatNonprofits. Winners will earn a spot on our 2013 Top-Rated List. The list will be distributed to media and corporate foundations nation-wide. (Repeat winner? You could get a spot on our Hall of Fame too!)

Get the funding and attention you deserve and the tools to promote your achievement!

How to Participate:

It’s simple, fast and free. Invite people who have seen your work – your volunteers, clients and board members – to write a review about you!  A nonprofit needs 10 or more positive (4 or 5 star) reviews to be placed on the Top-Rated List.
