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!

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.

Working to fullfill my purpose of good works as an image and likeness of God. Building my faith and helping others build their faith set me on a path of helping those in need with encouragement and soon to be linking those blessed with abundance to mentor and assist the suffering thru the internet with a Holy Place website. grassroots.org,inc. offered assistance to our efforts as the result of prayer and faith that God would send positive encouraging people to help us help others so I believe grassroots.org.inc. is a truly good organization.

I discovered grassroots.org quite by chance. We applied for their services and now are receiving their phone service for free (for a year). The service is much better than the one we had been paying for over 3 years. We also are utilizing their logo design service which has been amazing! So amazing - we can't truly decide. We are close though. We also plan on utilizing the web hosting services too once ours expires.

The services they offer to nonprofits is immeasurable and any contact we have had with them has been professional and friendly.

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

Surprisingly many times in signing up for services with others you feel that you are one of thousands, not with them. They have very quick turn around time and are clear and concise in explaining their services and how to utilize them.

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

Friendly, professional and courteous.

Extend it's reach, increase programs and services and grow to further many more great causes.

Grassroots.org helped our music booster organization set up a website and domain name. It has been awesome! We've been able to keep up communications with all of our parents without it costing valuable fund-raising dollars. Our informational site is appreciated by the many moms & dads who know that sometimes those concert notices and permission slips just don't make it home in the backpack!

They say you never get anything for free, but we certainly have through Grassroots.org. We built our organization website using Doodlekit provided free through Grassroots.org. The website was easy to set up (especially considering our complete lack of experience in this area), and it is easy to maintain. We've had many positive comments about our website! Even better than free website building and hosting, though, is the Social Ventures Consulting Program grant that we just received from Grassroots. This grant will pair us with MBA students who will work with us to complete the financial portions of our business plan. This is the help we desperately need but can not afford to pay for. As a new and small nonprofit, it is invaluable to be able to access the products and services that Grassroots.org provides. We are very grateful!

The Great!

Using the free web building/hosting tools provided by Grassroots.org and initial conversations with Juliet Lloyd about our selection as a Social Venture Consulting Program grant winner.
