The Top-Rated Nonprofit award is based on the large number of positive reviews that SSP received – reviews written by alumni, volunteers, donors and subscribers.
Here are excerpts from some of our recent reviews:
“I work to change the lives of other students because this nonprofit changed mine.”
“I was given the chance to showcase my high school research over the years because of the tremendous work this group does to put on the Intel ISEF and Intel STS competitions. Because of my participation, I made new friends, helped pay for college, and ultimately decided my career goal and college major.”
“I was a participant in several programs run by the Society for Science & the Public, and I can honestly say that they were life changing. I had always been interested in science but always felt that I didn't have the skill or talent to pursue my dreams. SSP gave the opportunity to travel the world and meet other students with my similar interests.”
“I can honestly say that the programs that SSP provides to the community changed my life. As a student with a learning disability I had little hope of pursuing my dream of becoming a professional scientist. Even many of my teachers encouraged me to 'have more realistic career ideas'…SSP not only encouraged me to complete my own experiments but to present them to the scientific community are part of the competitions they hosted.“
“I've faithfully read Science News for almost 20 years now, and there's just no other magazine like it in the industry. It doesn't "dumb down" research summaries. At the same time, the language and explanation are very understandable, even to a layperson.”
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, SSP was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year.
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “People with direct experience with Society for Science & the Public have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
Being on the Top-Rated list should give alumni, volunteers, donors and subscribers more confidence that SSP is a credible organization. This award is a form of recognition by the community and the reviews show the on-the-ground results.
