Nearly a dozen Arlington-based organizations have been recognized as “2012 Top-Rated Nonprofits” by the review website GreatNonprofits.

The nonprofits made the list by accumulating positive reviews from volunteers, donors and clients. A total of 1,386 U.S. nonprofits were listed this year. Among those based in Arlington:

Encore State & Studio Executive Director Sara Duke said the organization is “excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit.”

“We are proud of our many accomplishments this year, a successful first season of our Encore Presents series, new programs including the Encore Show Choir, and over 10,000 audience members for our 2011/2012 season,” she said.

    A quick plug for the Noble Argus Foundation (www.nobleargusfoundation.org), which is DC-based and raises funds to provide college scholarships to DoD Special Operations members and their families. The Foundation is giving all money raised through Christmas Day to a Spec Ops family that recently lost their house in a fire, including all the gifts for their 9-year-old daughter. Any support is greatly appreciated!

  • I volunteer with the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, and am so happy that we made the list! We wouldn’t be able to save the lives of so many animals if it weren’t for our supporters, volunteers, and adopters – so thank you!
