Forbes Dubs JDRF an All-Star Charity
Forbes magazine has released its annual list of 100 charities and nonprofits. In the Nov. 19 issue, the magazine highlighted five all-star organizations based on efficiency, and JDRF was selected as one of the five.
In the article “Forbes Picks 5 All-Star Charities: Top Rankings For Efficient Groups,” writer Abram Brown emphasizes the dedication of JDRF’s network of volunteers – including international chairman Mary Tyler Moore – and advocates as part of the reason for JDRF’s success. The article points out that most of the money raised with the help of these loyal volunteers goes directly to funding research.
The other organizations included as all-stars are: Brother’s Brother Foundation, United Way, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and International Rescue Committee. JDRF was the only disease-focused organization included among the selections.
