Top-Rated Military Families Nonprofits Announced for GreatNonprofits’ National Campaign
GreatNonprofits announced this week that 20 organizations have qualified for the 2011 Military Families Top-Rated Nonprofit List at the close of a month-long campaign in partnership with Cell Phones for Soldiers, the Fisher House Foundation, and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Organizations receiving ten or more positive stakeholder reviews during the month of October qualified for this top-rated list.
During the campaign, a total of 75 nonprofits were rated and reviewed by hundreds of clients, donors, and volunteers around the world. Over 800 reviews were submitted during the campaign that demonstrated the outstanding impact these organizations were having on active servicemen, veterans, and their families.
All of the participating organizations have shown the many ways nonprofits can help support our military families, both abroad and at home. User reviews of personal experiences and examples also help nonprofits ensure they are working in the right direction.
The VFW National Home for Children received 10 glowing five star reviews during the campaign including this one from beckyjo_ridler about her experience with the organization: “I moved to the VFW National Home when I was 7 years old, from Ohio. My Grandfather was a WWII Veteran. My Sister, Brother and I came with our mother and were part of the single parent program for 3 years. Then one day my mother left us and we ended up in the residential program (the best thing that ever happened to me). Even though my mother couldn’t get it together, the National Home didn’t give up on the 3 of us.
