My experience with S.A.V.E. has been a wonderful experience. The executive director works very hard and is works hard to support S.A.V.E.'s mission.

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

very kind and very educated in their field.

S.A.V.E. has been the force behind limiting expansion of the roadways in Chester County - which would then bring more industrial complex sprawl. It has galvanized a community and educated thousand to the issues around roadway safety and thwarted 2 by-passes while instituting traffic calming solutions.

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

local papers and in State of Pennsylvania transportation updates.

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

that we actually have thwarted expansion of Rt 41.

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

experts on the issues of transportation and conservation, and extremely able in navigating the political issues and had accumen in rallying support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

afford to lobby the local, regional and state entities to solve the solution of east-west transportation in the State of PA that would not cut through pristine rural farm property and afford a massive communications/awareness campaign.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
