The Volunteer Center of United Way in Tarrytown announced that it has again been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2013 Nonprofit,” says Alisa H. Kesten, executive director of The Volunteer Center. “The Volunteer Center is proud of our accomplishments this year, including 9/11: Serve and Remember days of service, MLK Day of Service held in 2013 and coming up again in January 2014, the Volunteer Spirit Awards as well of our Leadership Westchester training program. The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that The Volunteer Center received – reviews written by volunteers, agencies and program participants. People posted their personal experience with us. For example, one person wrote, ‘The Volunteer Center has been a great resource for me in getting involved with nonprofits in the community.’”
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, The Volunteer Center was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year and was also a recipient of the award in 2012.
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with The Volunteer Center have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
