Fair Chance was a godsend to our young nonprofit organization. Due to our work with Fair Chance, we were able to improve our marketing and communications, fundraising, finance, and Board development systems. In addition, potential funders noted our partnership with Fair Chance as a sign that we were on the right track as a developing nonprofit and that we had the support we would need to continue our growth. We have been able to take advantage of the Fair Chance community of nonprofit partners and philanthropic supporters to strengthen our organizational infrastructure and capacity with speed and quality that could not have been possible without Fair Chance's support.

The Great!

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

the relationships I've built with Fair Chance staff and nonprofit partner organizations.

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

passionate, committed, knowledgeable, and skilled at balancing visionary ideas with day-to-day practicalities.

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

provide longer-term in-depth support to its nonprofit partners and extend its reach to serve more and more worthy community-based organizations -- resulting in a stronger nonprofit sector able to support healthier communities.

Ways to make it better...

we could continue working as closely with Fair Chance as we did in our partner year.

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

staff turnover. The two keys to Fair Chance's impact are the organization's model and its fantastic staff. The model will always be there; retaining staff for longer periods will help maintain the community connections that make Fair Chance's support so unique.
