The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona may be a small organization with a tiny office and a short employee list, however, they don't let that limit their reach or impact on the market they serve. If you have questions or need any information regarding epilepsy, they are the best source of information. The Foundation is always happy to help with any issue or project that is taken to them.

The EFAZ has a strong mission but unfortunately does not have the support it needs from the community. In over 20 years in the non-profit sector have I ever experienced a board that was disconnected from the organization. They did not participate in fundraising or assist in recruiting corporate partners or solicit new members. I fear that this organization may not have enough sustainability to make it through 2010.

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

almost a year and yet it has not grown.

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

Revamp the board and review the military program that does not generate any income.

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

meeting new people.

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

helpful yet cynical.

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

Sustain itself for years to come.

Ways to make it better...

Board members were more engaged in the Foundation strategic plan.

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

Recruiting board members and corporate partners.

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

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
