Most of our nonprofit's funds are very restricted in use. It's impossible to spend money on graphic design and web design when you are trying to just cover your necessary overhead expenses. Grassroots.org has been a lifesaver! We have found graphic designers for different projects--one was for a logo for our first fundraiser race (to help us attract donors and runners) and the other was for a one-pager explaining what we do to the general public (replacing our tri-fold brochure which was more than 5 years old). These were things we would have had to do on our own (taking time and not turning out as well), or not done at all.
Best of all though, is our new website. We found a designer through Grassroots.org that used a Wordpress template and modified it to suit us. Our old website looked fine but was old technology, so we could not update it ourselves but usually had to pay a company to make even simple text updates. Because of that, it was VERY out of date in almost every way. Now we have a Wordpress site that can be quickly updated at any minute of the day even by staff that are not IT folks. The site looks great too!

As a new and small non-profit, Grassroots has been a blessing. Without services and tools they provide we would not have had much of a start at all!!!.. Thank you Grassroots and partners!

I'm on the board of a very small non-profit (less than $15K income per year) and it's important for us to ensure that virtually every dollar collected goes to direct assistance of our clients - people who need food assistance in our town of Bethel, CT. We are 100% volunteer run and need to use a web site and email to get the volunteers in motion when we run our three food drives each year. Yet we don't have the funds to spend on these things! Grassroots has been instrumental in allowing us to have a web presence and email host at 0 cost - which allows us to keep our volunteers and donors informed without taking funds away from our clients. They've been great to work with!

Our small non-profit group has battled with issues like an affordable web presence and fundraising tools. A member suggested we check out grassroots and we are so thankful we did. Thanks to grassroots we now have an attractive affordable web site and are part of the we-care fundraising campaign. The cost we have saved just on the web site is a huge benefit but not nearly as much as simply the exposure the website has brought us. The staff and volunteers have been wonderful to work with and the site has been a god send.

I just founded a not-for-profit corporation and I didn't know much on how to go around and create an impact. Joining grassroots has been very instrumental for me as far not-for-profit is concerned. Here I was introduced to GuideStar and then achieved a gold membership there. Afterwards, I will be getting lots of free tools to run my organization.

Thanks a lot to grassroots for opening my eyes.

I work for a large community mental health provider in SW Ohio called GCB, Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services, and funding for the tools needed for awareness building are nearly non-existent. I am in need of some branding assistance in order for us to present a consistent image in our materials, and looking for some simple graphic design help to improve what we are currently using. On a lark, I literally Googled something to the effect of, "free graphic design help for non-profits" and found Grassroots.org.
Now, I haven't yet connected with any help, but I wanted to leave a review because I had some trouble setting up my initial account, and the assistance I received blew me away! I expected to have to abandon my attempts because we didn't have the correct browser necessary. Val at Grassroots Support, made it happen for me, easily and pleasantly! If my initial experience is any indication, this is going to be the start of a beautiful relationship!

Gulf South Leadership Institute has been a member nonprofit with Grassroots for three plus years, and I am glad to report back with gratitude that we have benefited greatly from the services provided by this amazing organization. Professional volunteers and organizations that give back to communities through Grassroots have saved us tens of the thousands of dollars within the last three years, and for that our words cannot express the extent of our gratitude. Every project challenge we have posted has been met with great expertise and in a timely and professional manner. A big Gulf South Leadership Institute "THANK YOU!" goes out to the staff, individual volunteers and donating organizations who make life easy for nonprofits.

We at Mukuru Slums Water & Sanitation Project,Nairobi ,Kenya have had the opportunity to be a beneficially of donor funding from European Union to address the poor water and sanitation conditions in our community in collaboration with local community.

However, since the implementation of
the project, we have been unable to get a sponsor to our project which is currently not operational because of massive insensitivity from the Water supplier who disconnected the water supply to our project due to a debt.

We are now in the dark completely without any option to achieve the project objectives.The project does not have a website where people can have a look at our project mission and vision.Our country does not care less about Nonprofits whether or not affecting community and we have been looking for a well wisher to assist us with even a basic need like a computer .The many organization we have approached only told us that they do not sponsor infrastructure projects.Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.

Quite true .From start to completion I was instrumental because I served not only the Board but also the manual construction works on the ground .This was because I could not imagine that our poor community could not manage to implement this important project to all age groups and classes of people.

I would really put the Government to consider the plight of the less fortunate people and also to make sure that budget allocation is provided for community initiatives. I would also campaign that local community are trained to enhance their capacity.

I have been interacting with Grassroots.org for a couple of months and the need to put our Nonprofit on the worldwide map was the reason why, by design I fell onto the Grassroots.org website and what a fantastic discovery it was. I realized from the outset that Grassroots.org were in deed a friend and in need to assist other nonprofits especially with good development and maintaining of websites for those nonprofits subscribed with Grassroots.org In fact I do not have an idea of any other organization(s) that is performing the role of designing websites for other organization without an investment .For this we are in deed grateful to Grassroots.org for their role in supporting others even globally.Thank you and keep up the community spirits.

My nonprofit, MUKURU WATER & SANITATION PROJECT helps the community access clean water and decent sanitation services at a very affordable rate. Through my short interaction with the Grassroots.org as a member, I am profoundly renewed and empowered to continue working for the community because I realized that they assist nonprofits to upgrade their programs and at the same time supports businesses to prosper significantly courtesy of their fantastic tools. Recently, I got linked up with a volunteer web designer who is just about to embark on web designing for my nonprofit.To this we are wow and really uphold Grassroots.org for we could not even dream of having a website let alone afford hiring a web designer to put up a website for our nonprofit.We really value and appreciate the interconnection we enjoy being a part of Grassroots.org members.Thanks.

Having a board of directors from all walks of life is difficult - so I found a company called phone.com which could route calls to appropriate people in charge of certain areas - that led me to GrassRoots.org, which we found to be a great help in getting us a discount for the service that we needed so badly.

The only regret is that we were charged full price the second year, after we understood that it would be half price for the second year, and full price the following years. Not sure what happened.

The Great!

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

Attending the board meetings for our organization, it was very easy to tell that the GrassRoots / Phone.com relationship was the best choice to make, because there were no more missed calls, or messages. Every call was going to the appropriate person.

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

Make sure that it's made clear that if an organization is getting a discount for the second year, that it's spelled out how. We're still a little confused on some of the invoices that we received.

I used to work for Grassroots.org, and I just wanted to say that the staff is extremely kind and one that loves the people they serve. I think the services they offer really do provide many nonprofits a way of reaching out to a client base that they normally could not reach out to. It help makes the world smaller for nonprofits.

The Great!

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

witnessing how many people want to obtain access to Grassroots.org's services.

try to find some more office space so I could go back and work for them!
