INTERNATIONAL CHILD CARE IS HONORED AS 2015 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT GreatNonprofits.org Award is based on Positive Online Reviews
October 27, 2015 [KALAMAZOO, Mich.] –International Child Care (ICC) has been honored with a prestigious 2015 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2015 Nonprofit,” says ICC U.S. National Director Keith Mumma. "We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including our participation in a clinical trial for the instant detection of tuberculosis, taking place at Grace Children's Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti."
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that ICC received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and board members. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit.
For example, one person wrote, "I have been bringing church groups to encounter ICC and its holistic health ministiry since 1989. I like to lift up ICC as an example of an NGO whom donors can trust to be good stewards of their gifts. . . ICC's preventative and curative health care is a model for other NGO's to follow, which the World Health Organization and other respected groups have recognized."
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, ICC was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, ICC has been added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide—an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with ICC 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 by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
