I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many areas, from shutting down puppy mills, to sparing no expense in treating very sick dogs,

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of anything except they need more donors to continue their excellent work!

I have only been with MIMTHS since May of 2010. I learned about them from a display at a local event. I thought that the concept was a great idea. That is, to bring awareness to how much Michigan contributed to the defense effort in the 20th century. I am a retired member of the USAF, so that added to its attraction for me. I have been a volunteer at a few events since I joined. I enjoyed telling people about the organiaztion and how important it is not to forget our past.

The L.I.F.E organization has helped us greatly with networking and gaining reliable and credible sponsors for our parkour team. They are helping us spread the knowledge and philosophy of parkour worldwide and are aiding us into eventually getting parkour into our after school programs so we can give our kids something healthy and safe they can do in their free time. Where they can gain knowledge about themselves and their surroundings and make it possible for growth.

As a dues-paying member and a part of the founding and current Advisory Team, I have been impressed with the drive of the participants involved with GPNP to strengthen its reach and impact on the nonprofit sector of the greater Pittsburgh region. The work of GPNP in its infancy stage of development has been impressive and it is already considered a true difference-maker in the field.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

advocacy/public policy and communications for the nonprofit sector.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that we are making a difference in such a short time.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extraordinary leaders making a real change.

Ways to make it better...

even more nonprofits join!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

increasing membership and revenue to accomplish even more.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if you are involved in a nonprofit in the greater Pittsburgh region, and it is not a member of GPNP, you should encourage the agency to get informed and join.
