LANESBORO, MN—The Commonweal Theatre in historic Lanesboro, Minn., is pleased to announce that the organization has been named a “2019 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.
The Commonweal is Southeast Minnesota’s only year-round professional, live theatre company and is currently celebrating its 31st year of operation. “We are thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of support,” states Commonweal Executive Director Hal Cropp, “as seen in the stories posted about us on our Great Nonprofits page, which has led to this honor. Thanks to all who have supported us for 31 years as we look forward to Season 32 with hope and joy.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that the Commonweal received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “The Commonweal is nothing short of amazing in so many ways,” says Commonweal patron Karen D. “Commonweal is delightful professional theatre that never disappoints, an acting company that treats every person in the audience like family, varied and challenging repertoire season after season, AND this all happens in the small town of Lanesboro, Minnesota! We are so very fortunate to live close enough to enjoy it all, production after production.”
“The Commonweal Theatre Company 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 and supporting the organization.”
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.
