I was introduced to Bands for Lands about 6 months ago. Jeremy, the founder of the organization, is truly an amazing visionary that is passionate about sustainability and conservation through engaging events. The Rock Paper Scissor Tournaments I've been a part of are always a great time with great bands playing.

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

the energy. It's always exciting to be a part of whatever this organization might be putting together.

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

Jeremy and his team are great. They are positive, enthusiastic individuals.

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

continue to put together amazing events. Additional funds would be able to support more staff allowing them to not only dream of ideas to continue to support the mission statement, but also execute on those dreams.

Bands For Lands has created a very unique medium that combines education with entertainment. The city of Denver thrives off creativity and BFL has found a way to feed that craving with a dose of social responsibility. My experience with the organization comes from working for them, and hiring them. They are a solid organization through and through. I look forward to working with them more in the future.

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

suggest ways to partner with some of the city's greater events and initiatives.

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

collaborating on innovative green initiatives.

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

helpful, professional, and ambitious.

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

present their Mobile Edutainment Collaboratory (a mobile concert stage that operates from renewable energy sources) around the nation.

Ways to make it better...

The event had been planned during a warmer time of the year.

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

Overhead and preparation costs.

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

This organization has mine and my company's full support.
