For Immediate Release:

Brazilian Arts Foundation HONORED AS 2013 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT

New GreatNonprofits.org Award is based on Positive Online Reviews Houston, Texas, October 22, 2013 – Brazilian Arts Foundation 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 Mauricio Campos, President and CEO, Brazilian Arts Foundation.  We are proud of our accomplishments this year. The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that [Brazilian Arts Foundation] received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote,

“I have been taking classes (capoeira and samba) here for over 6 years and can’t say enough about the positive impact it has made on my life. The instructors are passionate about their craft and passing on their knowledge, history, and love for capoeira to the students. In all the years I’ve been taking lessons there I’ve never had a class end early, but often go past the end time. The atmosphere is one of family, with everyone helping each other to improve. If you are interested in improving your overall health, core strength, and flexibility in a great atmosphere, this is the place to go.”

While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Brazilian Arts Foundation 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 [Brazilian Arts 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.
