I have known and worked with the original organizer of the Society for a number of years on various projects and because of the experience of this affiliation, I volunteered to become involved as a board member. The mission statement of the Society expresses my concern for a need that is not being met by any other organization that I'm aware of. I believe Biblical Truths MUST be made aware to all, and rich Christian art can be used to inspire those who need or desire that extra inspiration.

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

I've viewed first hand the quality of work completed, as well as works in progress, of the artisans.

I have had a great opportunity working with the Society of St. Henry on many art projects, and am currently working on video advertisements for SSH.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Aquire all of the equipment needed for video advertisements as well as all of the material needed for artistic and educational developments.

Ways to make it better...

Right now I am constructing a promotional video for The Society of St. Henry,and believe that if given the opertunity, they would be able to purchase more productive software for these projecs.

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

I got involved because I felt that our youth have been missing out on so much of their Catholic heritage, Sacred Art being a profound voice that speaks us of that heritage from generations past. I feel tThe work the Society of St. Henry is doing is invaluable in evangelizing and helping to preserve our Christian culture for future generations.

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

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

The joy and excitement in the faces of people when some new piece of Sacred furniture or other artwork is first introduced to their worship space.

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

The most incredibly dedicated and generous people I've ever met.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Reach out nationally, and establish a fantastic sacred furniture and art gallery!

Ways to make it better...

We had the funding to acquire the neccessary tools and equipment to be more effective.

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

Getting donors to join with us to help address some of the root causes of problems many other organizations work so hard to heal the damages of.

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

It's a challenge being a pioneer mission. Being the first to step forward in a new direction increases the need for generous donors to come forward so St. Henry's can move forward cofidently.

The Society of St. Henry (SSH) has finally opened the door to what the world has been missing. I volunteer much of my time as a Fund Development Assistant and Mission Represenative for the Society of St. Henry. When I am not volunteering my time, I am working on my Master's degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Non-Profit Administration and Leadership. SSH is blessed - and still has much work to do!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

How do I put it in words. This mission would use it to reach out, to grow, and to work unceasingly to accomplish their missions goals.

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

Volunteering for this organization is a blast! Everyone is upbeat and very dedicated. The mission is good for other people, but is for us volunteer's as well.

It could expand its ability to educate and inspire other artist across the country to use their talents for the service of sacred art for the Christian community!

I am a Highschool Senior volunteer and have enjoyed my work with The Society of St. Henry. I think the work I'm helping them to do is going to make a difference to my generation. I want to help other people get closer to Jesus Christ and as a young artist I can see the importance of sacred art in doing that.

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

Getting to meet some wonderful people, and getting a great feeling of satisfaction knowing I'm helping others to know God better.

I got heavily involved because I felt strongly the work that the Society of St. Henry was doing was beneficial in strengthening the youth of our society in morals and values via religious cultural appreciation. Our world today is disrupted by economic uncertainty, terrorism, and violence. This can only be addressed in the longrun by a society that possesses strong morals and values. Sacred art is an expression of Christian culture spanning two millenia, and proper appreciation of this art form and culture in the hearts and minds of our young people will help to strengthen their morals and values as they face the challenges of their own generations. The Society of St. Henry seeks to do much good work in this field, and I want to be part of it.

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

Seeing the results of a presentation to 2nd graders visiting an old church building. Their understanding of the difference between secular and religious art forms was astounding.

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

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

Knowing that I am taking part in changing hearts and minds to make our world a better place.

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

Incredibly dedicated, and I am continually awed by their commitment to evangelizing people in general, but youth in particular.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a difference on a national scale, to schools, churches, and the lives of many people, and establish a gallery of sacred furnture and art that knows no equal in America.

Ways to make it better...

The organization had actually achieved its funding goals so they had the resources to be even more effective.

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

The fact that they are new, and struggling financially. They really need some honest financial support to get them solidly on their feet.

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