Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Named One of Nonproft Times 2017 Best Nonprofits to Work For

Arlington, VA, Tuesday, April 11, 2017 – Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society employees consistently highlight their ability to make a difference for Sailors and Marines as the leading factor in their job satisfaction, followed closely by recognition for work done well and the camaraderie they enjoy throughout the organization.

For the fourth consecutive year, 217 full-and-part-time employees of the Society responded to the annual survey conducted by The Nonprofit Times. Their responses resulted in the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society recently being ranked No. 12 of 27 medium-sized nonprofits and No. 20 overall of the Top 50 best nonprofits to work for. Since its founding in 1904, the Society has relied on volunteers to carry out the day-to-day mission of providing financial assistance to Navy and Marine Corps service members, their families, widows and orphans.  “Our 4,100 dedicated and loyal volunteers who serve in our offices and on ships around the globe bring unique perspective and collaboration opportunities which enrich our workplace. Everyone is valued here as vital members of our team” stated Retired USMC Col Kathy Estes, Vice-President and Chief Administrative Officer for the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.”

The annual survey and awards program conducted by The Nonprofit Times, is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the nonprofit industry, benefiting the industry's economy, workforce and businesses. Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Best Nonprofits To Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top nonprofits and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the ranking.  For more information on The Nonprofit Times’ Best Nonprofits To Work For program, visit
