BBYO Wins “Best Large Nonprofit” in Jewish Choice Awards
November 30, 2009
BBYO is excited to announce that it has won the “Best Large Nonprofit Award” in the South category (based on headquarter’s location) as part of the inaugural Jewish Choice Awards, sponsored by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user-generated ratings and reviews of nonprofits, Jewish Funders Network, JTA, Natan, Slingshot Fund, Jewish Jumpstart, Upstart Bay Area, JGooders.com, and Guidestar.
Over the course of the Jewish Choice Awards, more than 103,000 people visited the GreatNonprofits Web site, and almost 4000 reviews were posted about more than 180 nonprofits serving youth. This is the first ever list providing reviews of Jewish nonprofits by those who have actually experienced their work. The contest, held during October and November in honor of the Jewish High Holidays, asked people to submit reviews and ratings about Jewish nonprofits. The results show the dynamic and cohesive nature of the Jewish community, as well as the emphasis being placed on engaging the next generation. These unique results will be helpful to donors and supporters looking to get involved.
“Through this first-ever list of top-rated Jewish nonprofits, you can see how some of these nonprofits are changing lives,” said Perla Ni, CEO and founder of GreatNonprofits. “Donors and volunteers who are interested in getting involved now see which nonprofits are really making a difference."
Thank you to everyone who reviewed BBYO!
