Boca Raton, Florida July 31, 2014 – KidSafe Foundation announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2014 top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014Nonprofit,” says Sally Berenzweig Cofounder and Executive Director of KidSafe Foundation. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including growing over 30% in on year. The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that KidSafe Foundation received.
For example, one person wrote, “As a mother of a 6-year-old child, I thought I knew a lot about child dangers; but my experience with KidSafe Foundation taught me so much more (and realistic strategies I can share with my son). A parent lecture given by co-founder Sally Berenzweig was how I first came to know KidSafe. Sally’s presentation (and her genuine enthusiasm to protect kids) inspired me to get more involved in efforts to thwart child sexual abuse. I’ve since attended several KS lectures geared for professionals (e.g., mental health providers, teachers, school nurses) and an entire 8-week series geared for kindergarteners; the level of knowledge, ability to convey information, and appropriateness for each audience was stellar. Every child should be privileged to learn from KidSafe instructors. The KS founders and Board members are very passionate about the mission of helping kids: There is no other agenda than educating children, parents and teachers! Of the many organizations I volunteer for, KidSafe is the most rewarding. “
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, KidSafe Foundation was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, we’ll 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 KidSafe Foundation have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
