The Washington Business Journal has named Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life as one of the top 25 non-profit organizations in Washington, D.C.
“We are thrilled with this designation,” said Hillel President Wayne L. Firestone. “Washington, D.C., is home to some of the leading charitable organizations in the nation. It is truly an honor to be among the top 25.”
Hillel was ranked 12th on the list, which is based on money raised from special events in the metro area. The Washington Business Journal also honored the American Red Cross, the United Negro College Fund and the National Parks Conservation Association, among others.
“In these tough economic times, it is particularly important for non-profits to demonstrate sound fiduciary responsibility and conscientious stewardship,” said Steve Greenberg, vice chair of the Hillel Board of Directors and chair of the Development Committee. “We are gratified by The Washington Business Journal listing and by our Four-Star ranking by Charity Navigator, the group’s highest honor.”
