“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Bonita Johnson, Enchanted Closet President and CEO. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including celebrating our 10th Annual Prom Dress Giveaway. Since 2003, we have outfitted over 4,000 girls for special occasions. Additionally, the Enchanted Closet has served more than 400 girls through our GIRL$ Program, which are life-readiness workshops designed to increase the self-esteem, self-awareness and self-sufficiency of girls.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that The Enchanted Closet received – reviews written by volunteer, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “Working with Enchanted Closet has been hands down one of the most fun and enjoyable service opportunities I’ve participated in! Enchanted Closet is making a real difference in the lives of young women and I've seen the positive effects for myself.”
Being on the 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 The Enchanted Closet 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.
