Camp Fire First Texas Named "2023 Top-Rated Nonprofit" by GreatNonprofits, a Camp Fire First Texas blog

Award based on community recommendations

Fort Worth, Texas (October 10, 2023) – Camp Fire First Texas announced today it has been named a “2023 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading website for community recommendations of charities and nonprofits.

Camp Fire First Texas provides out-of-school time and outdoor learning programs for children and youth while also offering workforce development programs for the educators who care for them within North Texas communities.

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Camp Fire First Texas received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients.

“I love volunteering for Camp Fire First Texas. You can see life impacts immediately,” reads one review. “You know you are fertilizing the soil of life for the kids of DFW. The staff is dedicated to making investments into the lives they encounter. While Camp El Tesoro has provided countless memories for kids of all ages, the organization has blossomed into other critical arenas such as education, teen enrichment, life skills and after school activities. I’m proud of the work they do all year long. And I know the children who come in contact with that work is better for it.”

“Camp Fire First Texas 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 Camp Fire.”

GreatNonprofits is the largest donation website for nonprofits and 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.
