"Numbers numb, jargon jars, and nobody ever marched on Washington because of a pie chart. If you really want to reach people and change the world, tell them a story."
- Andy Goodman, Storytelling Best Practices: Websites
A story is a great way for potential volunteers and supporters to connect with your organization. It gives them a personal insight into what you do and the change you're making in the world. GreatNonprofits gives you the opportunity to get those stories told.
What is GreatNonprofits? Can GreatNonprofits reviews help my nonprofit gain more donors and volunteers?
GreatNonprofits is a local community website allowing you to harness all the goodwill of people who know you best - your clients, your volunteers - and enable them to tell their stories about your organization through reviews.
We make it easy, and free, for you to have your stories told. All you have to do is find your organization's profile, claim and update the information, and encourage people to review! Send emails, tweets, Facebook updates, anything you want to spread the word and get reviews. 84% of donors say that reviews are considered helpful when deciding whether or not to give to the nonprofit. (See more of what supporters want here.)
We help get the word out about your organization and the great things you're doing. We syndicate your organization's reviews to partner websites in the "Star Alliance," including GuideStar and Charity Navigator. We also provide a GreatNonprofits Badge for your website, a symbol of a nonprofit committed to transparency.
The GreatNonprofits Badge also lets visitors read people's stories and add their own directly through your website.
Take advantage of this great opportunity to have your stories shared. Get started today!

"I have been involved with Hope For The Warriors for a few years now, and last year had the honor and humbling experience of being asked to serve on the Skyline Salute Committee. Skyline Salute is one of the organization's largest events held here in New York City.
It is hard to put into words the feeling of privilege that comes from working with a group of people who truly put their heart and souls into their work. The warmth, love and support shown by the amazing men and women who run this organization is felt well beyond the service members who they support.
Hope For The Warriors is, without a doubt, a top notch organization who I can only hope to continue to align myself with in the future." -Brittany23
