Review from Guidestar
January 17, 2011

I am chairman of the board of an herbal/dietary supplement company, and we have been major supporters of the American Botanical Council for many years. I consider ABC to be one of the most trusted and scholarly sources of information about botanical medicine, and I am constantly delighted by ABC's energy, honesty, integrity, and service. Mark Blumenthal, the organization's Executive Director, is a treasure. His scholarship is impartial and thorough, his books and articles are critical resources, and his personal professional conduct is impeccable. I am proud that my company is a major donor to ABC, and any donor should have confidence in the integrity of this organization.

The Great!

The American Botanical Council is a model of focus, dedication and commitment to their mission of helping people to lead healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. I have personally known the ED for 25 years and his integrity, honesty and service to ABC and this industry is beyond reproach. I am dismayed at reading one disgruntled employee's posting and thinking that anyone on Guidestar could post false or misleading information and not be subject to intense vetting and scrutiny to confirm the accuracy of these statements. I have to ABC on a number of occasions and I can guarantee that the adminstrative costs are more in the 15-20% range than the absurd number claimed in this post. In fact anyone who knows the non profit world in any depth would know that you could never accomplish your mission, nor would anyone donate to you, if you had any 80% admin cost. I encourage everyone who is intereted to review ABC's 990's, talk with the ED personally and thoroughly review what this group is accomplishing - you will find a stellar organization, one that deserves our support and applause.

The Great!

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

They continually put out clear and accurate information on herbs and medicinal plants and make sure the public has the information they need to make an informed decision when controversial stories hit the news on herbs.

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

The ED is a gentleman, well versed, extremely hard working and quite personable.

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

Help provide accurate information on how herbs and medicinal plans could play a roll in addressing the health care crises in our country.
