Great Nonprofits Award

New Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews

Metropolitan Area Washington D.C., October 7, 2013 – BVL 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 BVL Board Chair Darlene Baker. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including recreation grants to VA Medical Centers, programs for wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Medical Center, and our support of the VA national veteran’s competitions.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that BVL received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit, for example one person wrote, “I will give to BVL in time and money every year. There is nothing more satisfying than giving an amount to a cause and knowing that it actually gets to those you intended it for. I have actually given the grants to our State Vet Hospitals, spent some time with the vets, and experienced the joy they feel being remembered, supported and honored. Donors should give freely as they are assured that the donation goes directly to the vets.”
