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.

Grassroots.org has a lot of great services for nonprofits and the one we needed the most was the free web hosting. Our animal rescue organization wanted and needed a clean, organized and flexible site to showcase our rescues, our programs, and to generate support. Our volunteers have tons of great ideas but we didn't have the technology to implement them. But because of Grassroots.org, we now do and can make those ideas become realities. Additionally, we plan to take advantage of the free graphic design services and possibly the business consulting in the future. We are very grateful for the services provided by Grassroots.org. It is an organization that really touches many things - the environment, people, animals. It gives nonprofits a chance to make a bigger difference in this world than was originally imagined. Grassroots.org is a great nonprofit that creates even greater nonprofits.

Not sure how to answer this question. Maybe reword the question?

I had the privilege of being the designer/developer for one of GrassRoots.org's listed organizations, Break the Chain Foundation. Working hand in hand with one of GrassRoots.org's leading members, Laura, I was able to obtain the necessary information needed to begin a solid partnership with Break the Chain Foundation's contact person, Jamie. Although I have been a volunteer member of GrassRoots.org for a few years, this one project was my first and it was truly a great experience. GrassRoots.org is a great organization and they have an amazing philosophy that is carried on by those who play very vital roles in the day-to-day operations of connecting businesses to those non-profit orgs who are in need. I proudly let people know about Grassroots.org every chance I get.

I stumbled across Grassroots.org when the bottom fell out of our website. We were using a free website application for PTAs and their funding under. Within no time, I was up and running again and our website looked outstanding! I had zero budget for the year as the original site had been free, so I was thrilled to find Grassroots to continue supporting our organization without the dollars.

Grassroots was a life preserver to our sinking website. Our organization had been hosting the web site on a members account but when the member switched to highspeed the website account was deleted. As a non-profit with our average board member age at 70+ we were just about ready to give up on a website. Then a member from the United States suggested I try Grassroots and they were so professional and so helpfull. Now our website is back online and I can manange it myself easily and they have offered other great services which our organization is starting to make use of.

Helping other non-profits meet the needs and standards of todays world in the internet marketing and promotion. Grassroots is helping to bring organizations the help they need through other organizations in areas where costs are usually very restrictive.
