Timucuan Parks Foundation Named 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits

The nonprofit was chosen for its outstanding online reviews

Timucuan Parks Foundation is pleased to announce it has been selected as a “2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, a leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits. TPF supports local city, state and national parks in northeast Florida through community programs, public education and outreach, and volunteer coordination. Through their efforts over the last 20 years, they have promoted the parks as places that instill a sense of place and sense of well-being for the community.

“Receiving this designation is a wonderful honor for us and a great tribute to our efforts to promote our extensive park system,” said Mark Middlebrook, executive director of TPF. “We have the largest park system in the U.S. We are thankful to all the volunteers who have helped us this past year and for our board members who have been great champions of our parks.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that TPF received from board members, volunteers and supporters of the organization.

Dan Lehmann wrote, “I have volunteered with them for years. They are an outstanding organization that does great work for the greater Jax area. They preserve, protect and enhance the many different types of parks we have in our large geographic city. Shoreline cleanups, invasive species removal and promoting outdoor activities in these parks are some of the things that they do. I like that they get lots of high school kids involved in these events. The kids get community service hours and the community gets a better environment because of it. Win, win. Great organization.”

“Timucuan Parks Foundation is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with TPF.”

GreatNonprofits is the leading website where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.6 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities – as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid.
