The Lake Champlain Committee (LCC) has been named a “2018 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits. LCC uses science-based advocacy, education and collaborative action to protect water quality, safeguard habitats, provide access, and foster stewardship in the Lake Champlain watershed. 

“We are honored to be named a 2018 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” said Lori Fisher, LCC Executive Director. “Clean water is vital to our communities, health, economy and quality of life. We’re grateful for the donors and volunteers who invest in the work to protect and improve Lake Champlain’s health.”

“Lake Champlain is an amazing resource and warrants the type of attention that LCC provides, state Gary Kjelleren, LCC Board Chair. “I volunteer and donate to the LCC because it is one of the most effective ways I can make a difference.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is the based on the rating and number of reviews that LCC received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “The dedicated staff and volunteers who work for and with the Lake Champlain Committee have for decades made the health of the lake and its watershed their top priority. Their advocacy and educational programs have been key in getting people and policy makers to recognize threats to the lake, and their Cyanobacteria monitoring program is a model for “citizen science” programs, keeping people in two states and two countries informed about water quality issues”, stated LCC donor and volunteer Tim Etchells.

“The Lake Champlain Committee 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 LCC.”
