For Immediate Release:




CORD USA Inc has been honored with a prestigious 2015 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.  We have been on their top-rated list  for four years in a row!


We are excited to be named a Top-Rated [enter year] Nonprofit. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including the grant from Hindu American Foundation on our work on Bhutanese Refugees Empowerment Program (BREP). The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that CORD USA received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. 


For example, one person wrote, “Cord USA is a wonderful organization that is full of dedicated members who donate their time, resources and energy for nothing more than the possibility of empowering others. Their mission of not only helping the communities in need, but also teaching the communities how to be self-sustaining and independent is inspiring! I would recommend anyone who is looking for a nonprofit group to volunteer with to contact Cord USA and ask them how you can help. I know they would appreciate it and I speak from experience, the time you donate to Cord USA gifts you with so much wisdom and compassion.”


While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, CORD USA was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, we’ll been added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide—an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.


“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with CORD USA 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.
