Menlo Park, Calif., July 7, 2009 — Community-based nonprofits and religious gay groups get top ratings in the GreatNonprofits 2009 Pride Choice Awards. Local LGBTQ nonprofits focusing on education, service, and advocacy received more positive ratings than large national nonprofits. Religious organizations, surprisingly, also made a strong showing in the list of winners.
June 1, 2009 — In honor of June which is LGBTQ Pride Month, the 2009 GreatNonprofits Pride Choice Awards (www.greatnonprofits.org/pride) will recognize the top-rated LGBTQ nonprofits. The contest asks people to write reviews of LGBTQ nonprofits they have had an experience with. Nonprofits can also encourage their volunteers, clients served, donors and board members to post reviews. All reviews will be automatically visible on GuideStar.org, the leading site for philanthropic research.
