I was a volunteer tax preparer for SPIN/Centerboard's Financial Stability Center in 2009 and 2010. As an Accounting student during a challenging economic period I thought it was a good opportunity to increase my skills. With the staff's help, I was able to do that. Their professional, yet friendly, approach helped me to further understand tax preparation skills and requirements. But something else happened along the way; I found that I was helping others during a stressful time of year (tax season).

And that is the secret of any successful non-profit - to help others whether they cross the threshold searching for help, looking for employment, or to volunteer. Their friendly, professional, compassionate approach serves to help all of their clients regardless of which side of the desk they sit.

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

Narrow their focus and increase their private contributions so they are not so heavily dependent upon public finance.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

I make quilts and knit and crochet hats and sweaters for this organization. They always make sure that someone who needs these donations receives them. Have spoken with some folks that they have helped. What a worthy cause.
