The International Essential Tremor Foundation Honored as 2013 Top-Rated Nonprofit
Date:5/28/2013

Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) announced today 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 Catherine Rice, IETF executive director. “The IETF is a voice for those with essential tremor (ET). We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including another successful National ET Awareness Month, the funding of more basic research into the cause of ET, and the recent release of a new video centering on the emotional and psychosocial aspects of ET.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that the IETF received—reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted about their personal experiences with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “When I was diagnosed with essential tremor my neurologist sent me home with a bottle of pills and very little information. In my experience, the IETF has filled a very big void left from the lack of information available in most doctors’ offices.”

While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, the IETF was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year.

“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” says Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “People with direct experience with the International Essential Tremor Foundation 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.
