Cincinnati is very proud to have Matthew:25 representing its philanthropic efforts. M25 defines everything you want in a charity-always responsive, available, and giving in so many geographies and walks of life. They make us want to contribute to their causes.
I have known about Matthew 25 Ministries for quite some time now, and I follow their charitable activities. They do a wonderful work, and they are a true inspiration!
Matthew 25: Ministries is one of the most outstanding organizations with which I've had the privilege of working. The nonprofit is truly committed to its mission, helps major companies provide a charitable outlet to their employees, is well organized and staffed with wonderful people. I've had the honor of working with them on several occasions and everyone is always super responsive and their commitment to serving the poorest of the poor is evident. My 8 year old daughter even chose to spend her birthday volunteering there. I hope they keep up their good work for decades to come.
I was first introduced to Matthew 25: Ministries through my company, which is a major contributor of clothing, first aid supplies, fabric and other items that the company no longer has a business use for. It has always amazed me how M25M finds value for every possible item that is discarded AND operates at an efficiency that allows 99% of all cash and in-kind donations to go towards programs. In 2011, I was able to experience the magnitude of M25M's direct impact on the poor by accompanying a team from M25M to Haiti. It was a life-changing experience and I look forward to returning again this year to distribute desperately needed clothing and medical care. In short, the world is a better place because of Matthew 25: Ministries and Cincinnati is lucky to be home to such an amazing organization.
My husband and I have supported this organization for years. We know that our money is used wisely and for its intended purposes. The outreach programs touch people in Cincinnati and surrounding suburbs as well and people in cities nationwide who have felt the devastation caused by natural disasters. The international efforts of Matthew 25 Ministries reach poverty stricken countries in many ways. Where there is a need, they are there.
This organization is the best! They reach out locally, nationally and internationally. They have been quick to respond to disasters and continually support the less fortunate in our area. I have been a volunteer at their facility and am amazed at how they wisely use donated items. In our time of ecological awareness their ability to reuse what other people and companies are unable to use, is amazing.
The volunteer opportunities are enjoyed by all ages. Our grandchildren ages 2-7yr have been kept busy along with many other ages of people. The staff in the warehouse are very friendly and organized. Never have I seen idol volunteers.
Because of what we have seen and know of this ministry, my husband and I have been donors for quite a few years. We are very confident that our money is used for its intended purpose...to help those in need.
Great company with great vision and big hearts!!!
I've worked with Matthew 25 Ministries at their site and on a trip with them to deliver winter clothing needed by elementary school children. There is a level of commitment and dedication throughout Matthew 25 Ministries, combined with a focus on those in need, that forms the basis for their growth and success in meeting the needs throughout the World of those whose circumstances in Life require such assistnance. Combined with the efficiency and humility with which they operate, you will find no better evidence of God's work being performed by your fellow man, woman, and child, than what you will find when you visit and support Matthew 25 Ministries.
As the Procter & Gamble Company Disaster Relief and Donation Coordinator, I have had the opportunity to work with Matthew 25: Ministries very closely over the past year. P&G is proud to be able to support M25M by providing product donations. I have experienced firsthand the incredible work in they do in efficiently and effectively distributing products to those most in need in the U.S. and around the world. M25M has also become an important partner of ours in the disaster response area. Their expertise and experience in responding and providing aid to victims of disaster is inspiring. The professionalism, commitment and passion of their staff make working with them a pleasure. M25M is an exceptional organization and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.
M25M is an amazing organization. The staff is compassionate, the donations are used wisely and they respond to a crisis incredibly quickly. M25M is devoted to making peoples lives better, particularly people in those areas that tend to be forgotten by the media and neglected by their government. The organization communicates with their volunteers and donors extremely well. This is a first class organization in every respect.
I have been involved with Matthew 25 Ministries as both a donor and a volunteer. Every time I visit the warehouse or read a newsletter, I am amazed by all that M25M accomplishes each year. They distribute donated items to the neediest areas of the world, build permanent homes for people who have lived out of cardboard lean-tos, provide medical care, distribute food from the Prasco Food Proscessing Center, create and distribute notebooks from repurposed paper, and even remix paint that has been donated to distribute to not-for-profits around the globe. It truly is amazing the numerous ways that M25M is able to make a difference in the lives of the poorest of the poor. By partnering with in-country ministries, M25M is able to effective in disaster relief situations. When boats worth of donated relief supplies sat in the harbors of Haiti after the earthquake held up in bureaucratic red tape, M25M was able to quickly get supplies to the people that needed them. I am very impressed with this ministry and will continue to partner with them for years to come.
Matthew 25: Ministries continually amazes me in how effective and efficient they are in exceeding the expectations of all stakeholders. M25M demonstrates the highest level of integrity while compassionately responding to the needs of others in times of great despair. An incredible ministry!
I have been a weekly volunteer for several years because I have found M25M to be making an enormous impact on those in need in many areas of the world and because the organization, management and people there are first rate; really like a large caring family. I take great satisfaction in being a part of it and this has led me to become a regular donor as well as a volunteer. I could not find any fault on any level with this charity and have total confidence that my donations are well applied. It is also a great charity to tour and see first-hand.
