I found out about the foundation from a friend. What I really enjoyed about the foundation is that they're making a big impact with a small team, and everyone involved is helping with passion. They started for a good reason and the goals remain the reason why the foundation operates.

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

The passion of the team and their respective results

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

feel proud (I know that's not what you're asking, but that's my answer)

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

They keep a positive spin on things

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

Very passionate, excited, and dedicated to the cause. They weren't in this for a paycheck. They were a part of this for the mission statement.

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

Turn it into a billion and make a huge difference

Ways to make it better...

The economy allowed me to donate more

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

It's a new organization without a lot of up-front funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

great job with the poker tournament

I've been helping out with the foundation for years and they have acheived so much from working to find a cure for Ewing's Sarcoma to helping fund a teen room at Rady Children's Hospital. They have also organized great events including their annual gala, an early screening of the new Harry Potter movie and a poker tournament. The Seany Foundation has been able to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancers while ensuring everyone has a great time!

continue doing what they are doing.

the fist annual Seany-Lew charity poker tournament which was just held in July of this year.
