I am a leader of a Girl Scout Troop. Every year at cookie time my girls collect donations of Girl Scout cookies & candy to ship overseas to our soldiers. Freedom Alliance has been a great help with shipping the cookies to our soldiers. My girls look forward to sending the goodies along with thank you cards they make. It's been a great experience for them and it's nice to receive the thank you notes & pictures from the soldiers.

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

receiving thank you cards from the soldiers. It's nice to see how our girl scout cookies are appreciated.

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

make none

Our military members look after our freedom. And who looks after them and their families ?
Freedom Alliance does - not only now but for future generations.
I have never encountered a non-profit that is better.
Freedom Alliance has developed so many successful "where-the-rubber-meets-the-road" programs of support - financial, thousands of care packages sent to active duty troops, nationwide dinners and events for injured and their families, AND they provide scholarships for children of our fallen heroes, AND their unique Military Leadership Academy (MLA) every summer for high school students is a "hands on" education program of both classroom and field work from which numerous cadets have now gone on to our military academies and service to our county for the future.
What an amazing and effective organization - no wonder it is certified Best in America by the Independent Charities of America. It is certainly five star top-notch in my book.... It's the people there, the founders, all the volunteers, donors and partners. Thank you for all you do. I am forever glad that I have been fortunate enough to meet and work with many of them. Contact them, you'll be glad you did.

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

Through meeting many supporters, learning of the programs, and seeing the appreciation of troops in Iraq for all the items sent to them.

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

Create a "What Is Freedom?" class/program for young people (and others) to provide on-going education and "brush up" on our founding principles and the components of "...eternal vigilance" in the current context.

According to a 2006 tax filing Freedom Alliance spent 3% of income on programs and 97% of income on expenses.

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

distribution of funds to soldiers families.

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

reduce the amount spent on administration by 78%.

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

The concerts were very nice.

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

Very nice.

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

really help families of wounded warriors.

Ways to make it better...

They devoted more money for the wounded veterans.

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

Changing the way it spends money.

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

it is a great idea to help the troops.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
