Review for GreatNonprofits, Redwood Shores, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was disgusted to read some of the reviews and the irrelevant comments that GNP allows to be posted about nonprofits.
How is it that GNP's board and advisers have posted their impressive creds and they are party to decieving the public that GNP is like Yelp or Zagat. That's hypocritical.
It is a review site where there are rants and flame wars, personal information and impersonating an officer of the law, bullying, fake posts, lies, anonymous commenters. GNP is not worthy to even wipe the feet of the nonprofits that are under attack that results because GNP can't even carry out a TOU.
It's terrible that the CEO dramatically describes how nonprofits helped her and then she allows nonprofits to be trashed on her review board. She's a lawyer.
The marketing manager who responds to complaints is a 2008 grad with no nonprofit experience. Thats completely obvious. The board of directors has allowed her to run GNP credibility into the ground with her many smart alec emails about how GNP is not responsible.
GNP is a joke. Use Yelp. They earned the reputation that GNP pretends dishonestly to be like.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They refused to remove fake posts about an agency I know personally and allow stalkers to post all the time

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

shut them down

Review for Hiss & Spit Inc, Weehawken, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I saw the H&S volunteer team at the adoption fair, where I was impressed with the quality of their volunteers and the condition of the animals for adoption. I had adopted from another group a while back and never got any vet records and ended up with a cat with several medical issues. H&S showed me up to date checkup records to read about the cat that I wanted to adopt. They also checked my apt. before confirming the adoption, and also contacted my vet. They helped introduce the new cat to my current alpha cat and it went smoothly. They are now best buds and I want to thank H&S for the work they do and for making the new cat experience a very positive one.
