Congratulations to the 43 organizations that qualified for the 2011 Education 4 All Top-Rated Nonprofit List! The campaign ran throughout the month of September in partnership with Little Kids Rock, Communities in Schools, Givology, Parents Education Network, the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, and the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth. Organizations receiving ten or more positive stakeholder reviews during the month of September qualified for this top-rated list.
During the campaign, a total of 181 nonprofits were rated and reviewed by hundreds of clients, donors, and volunteers around the world. Over 1,000 reviews were submitted during the campaign that recognized how these organizations have improved the quality, access, and diversity of education around the world.
All of the participating organizations have demonstrated the variety of ways nonprofits can help support schools and make education more available. User reviews of personal experiences and examples also help nonprofits ensure they are working in the right direction.
Admission Possible received 20 glowing five star reviews during the campaign including this one from Michelle I., a participant in the program: “As a sophomore in high school, I had no plans on going to college. I didn’t think it was possible for a low-income, first generation student to go to college. Joining Admission Possible in for my junior and senior years changed my life. They showed my that college is possible for anyone and everyone given the resources they need. Admission Possible prepared me for, and signed me up to take the ACT, apply for financial aid, apply to and actually get in to the college of my choice. As a now sophomore in college, I credit my success to Admission Possible as a whole and the wonderful coaches they employ. I am now a social work major hoping to make a difference in people’s lives, like Admission Possible did for me!
