Stageworks Theatre Named as One of 2013's Top-Rated Nonprofits
Stageworks Theatre 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 Anna Brennen, Founder/Producing Artistic Director of Stageworks. " We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including our upcoming diverse mainstage season, which opens with the highly acclaimed, A Raisin in the Sun on October 3rd."
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Stageworks received - reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit.
For example, one person wrote, "SW is easily the finest regional theater in the Tampa Bay Area. They are astonishing not only for the quality of the productions but also their exemplary program of outreach into needy communities such as at-risk youth. Their mission to present stories of under-represented populations - including women, gays, ethnic minorities - makes a real difference. Their support of local playwrights including annual one-act festival is a substantial contribution in an area with few similar resources." -Ed Stevens, Kennedy Center Award Winning Playwright
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Stageworks 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 Stageworks 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.
To provide the highest quality professional theatre which respects, ignites and celebrates the human spirit while challenging the thresholds of intolerance and insensitivity.
