Calling all womenablers! You have one week left to shine a light on a favorite non-profit organization that’s making the world a better place for women.
GreatNonprofits and GuideStar have launched the 2010 Women’s Empowerment Campaign, in partnership with a whole host of women-focused groups, including: Kiva, the National Organization for Women, the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, MADRE, Wider Opportunities for Women, Dress for Success, Women’s Media Center, Women News Network, Women’s Philanthropy — Women’s Issues, World Pulse, and Vivanista. The goal – to identify and shine a spotlight on top-rated nonprofits focusing on women’s issues.
The contest ends on May 31, so – sometime in the next week, click on this link to nominate your favorite NGO and/or add a comment to reviews that have already been posted. Thus far, there are nearly 1,000 reviews of over 200 organizations.
What are the benefits of spending a few moments sharing your thoughts?
- Recognition: Every organization that gathers 10 or more positive reviews during the month of May will make the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Women’s Empowerment Nonprofits list;
- Community engagement: It’s a wonderful opportunity for nonprofits and their community members to interact and engage directly via providing their comments; and
- First-person stories: Clients, volunteers, donors and others can share with the public, in their own words, how this nonprofit serves its community.
So, take a few moments to add your voice to the others applauding virtually for all of the hard-working non-profit organizations that are making a difference for the world’s women!
