Rating: 5 stars  

The Ohio Environmental Council is the premier environmental organization for the state, because it brings together so many different people and groups to insure the health of Ohio and its environment. This 40-year old group is well-respected by foundations, government agencies, industries, legislators and others. Importantly, the Ohio Environmental Council uses funds wisely and effectively, as demonstrated by the highest rating given by Charity Navigator.

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

--the responsiveness of public and private officials to the views of the OEC, another measure of the respect that the organization has gained over the years.

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

--get them more staff and more contributions. The current staff works very hard and very effectively.
