SUPPORT CONNECTION HONORED AS 2015 TOP RATED NONPROFIT
GreatNonprofits.org Award is based on Positive Online Reviews
Support Connection announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2015 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. Support Connection provides free support services, such as counseling, support groups and other programs, to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer.
This Top-Rated Nonprofit award presented by GreatNonprofits is based on the large number of positive reviews Support Connection received: online reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experiences with the organization.
For example, one woman, a cancer survivor who reached out to Support Connection, wrote: “I contacted Support Connection and it was the best call I made in my life. My counselor listened to my fears and concerns and understood exactly what I was feeling. She has supported me through rough times and happier times. I would speak to her as I was going through my journey. It is 6 ½ years since that first call and still today I am supported by this remarkable organization.”
While the Top-Rated Awards ran through the end of October, Support Connection was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, Support Connection has been added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide—an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of Support Connection. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
Support Connection Executive Director Katherine Quinn says: “We are honored to receive this award again. We are especially pleased because it’s based on reviews from the people who know us best: those who have volunteered for or donated to us, and most importantly, people who reached out to us and found the help, understanding and guidance they needed to get through some of the toughest challenges anyone can face.”
Quinn adds “In 2016, Support Connection will celebrate 20 years of providing free breast and ovarian cancer support services. We are proud of our accomplishments. With continued support from our donors and the community, we look forward to many more years of fulfilling this important mission.”
