DAWG Honored as a 2013 Top-Rated Nonprofit
Direct Action Welfare Group announces that it has been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2013 Nonprofit,” says Evelyn Dortch, President of Direct Action Welfare Group (DAWG). We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including being elected as the first Appalachian organization to the National Planning Committee of the US Social Forum.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Direct Action Welfare Group received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “DAWG really gets it. They understand what its like to be poor and have to make it. They’re not like all these others ran by people with money who just want to help poor people. DAWG is poor people. Its so cool to find a place that knows what its like and really wants to help change things for us.”
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Direct Action Welfare Group have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
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.
