San Francisco, CA, December 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- IDEX (International Development Exchange) announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Trenton DuVal, Development & Communications Manager at IDEX. It is welcome recognition of our accomplishments this year, from bringing our South African partners to the U.S. networks to winning the 2012 Silicon Valley Award for Nonprofits.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that IDEX received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “I love IDEX. With strong leadership, a dedicated team and a great model, IDEX is all about disrupting the field of international aid. They are deeply committed to connecting people who want to support change to the local leaders and solutions that are delivering that change in their communities.”
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. Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence when supporting organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show that IDEX delivers on-the-ground results in marginalized communities in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
"We are gratified by IDEX 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."
IDEX identifies, evaluates, and grows the best ideas from local leaders and organizations to alleviate poverty and injustice around the world.
