Irvine, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018MIND Research Institute announced today it has been named a “2018 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.

“We are honored to be named a 2018 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” said Brett Woudenberg, MIND’s CEO. “It is a fantastic achievement to be recognized by our happy customers, partners and volunteers. We appreciate GreatNonprofits for shining a light on our efforts to mathematically equip all students and ready them to become future STEM leaders.“

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that an organization receives from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “MIND is making a difference in the lives of many students,” said one reviewer. “Mathematics is often a gatekeeper for students to reach high levels in their education and in careers. ST Math gives confidence in math to all students and supports critical thinking and problem solving.”
