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 are Curry County Habitat for Humanity, an affiliate of Habitat International. We had a web site that was static and out of date. I am a Board Member and now a Webmaster. I did a search on line for someone that could help us with a new web site for a low cost because we are an all volunteer organization and our funds are limited. I came across Grassroots.org and found all the help we needed to get a first class web site up and running. And our cost was just the time spent using the great companies and their web building tools that Grassroots has assembled. Our site has just recently made it's presents known on the web so we don't have a lot of feed back yet. However with all the pages we were able to create, we believe that once people find our site we will be able to expand our support base so that the people of Curry County that need help with decent housing, can get the help they need. And the follow up and help from the volunteers and staff at Grassroots is just fantastic. They continue to offer more companies for our use and the support of what is already available is great.

Thanks for the kudos, David! It is such an honor to have helped a local Habitat for Humanity chapter. Watching members become empowered and take charge of their own web presence motivates us to continue our work!

I haven't used Grassroots because, after I joined, I couldn't get anybody to call me back about your service. I've sent emails and was told someone would contact me. Well, that's been 6 months or more. I have nothing good to say.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! Sorry to hear you were unable to get a hold of our staff. In our last communication with your organization, we indicated that being contacted via our Volunteer Program is contingent upon a volunteer who, after reading your application, feels he/she can help you with your web design needs. In that email, we also suggested using a web builder to create a site while you wait to be contacted by a volunteer. After that, we did not receive a response on the matter. As a note, you can always contact us via our (800) number or email our support. Any of our staff members will be able to answer any questions.
