"It's SO nice to be the bearer of great news," commented Karen Rayzor, GuideStar's director of nonprofit relations. She'd just finished calling five nonprofits to tell them that they had each won $1,000 in the 2009 GuideStar Exchange Giveaway.
To be eligible for the drawing, the organizations had to complete all required fields in the GuideStar Exchange Form, be approved for the GuideStar Exchange Seal, and register for the giveaway.
Almost 1,400 nonprofits registered for the drawing. The five winners were drawn at random. They are:
- Center for International Policy Inc., Washington, D.C.
- Learning Lab Inc., Garden City, Idaho
- SADD Students Against Drunk Driving, Inc., Marlborough, Mass.
- STAR Center, Jackson, Tenn.
- The TEAK Fellowship Inc., New York, N.Y.
Congratulations to the winners, and to every organization that holds the GuideStar Exchange seal.
