“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Damon Portis, Chairman of Illinois Blessing NFP. "We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including helping several families stay afloat with their utilities, rent or mortgage payments."
The 2012 Top-Rated Nonprofit List was based on the large number of positive reviews that Illinois Blessing NFP received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “With the cost of fuel and food prices many working families are struggling to stay ahead and I believe that Illinois Blessings was raised for such a time as this. They screen every application to verify the need, so you can be assured your contributions will not be wasted. What I like about Illinois Blessing NFP, is that I can choose where to give and know that my gift goes directly to those in need, without waste on overhead like so many other ministries and non-profit organizations. Truly Illinois Blessing NFP is a "Blessing" not only to those in needs, but for those who want to know their giving will make a difference in transforming lives. ”
Being on the 2012 Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.
"We are gratified by Illinois Blessing NFP for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support."
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.
