I am constantly impressed with the passion and the commitment that this organization gives from each and every volunteer, staff and board member. The fundamental goal of saving a life is the most basic and pure form of unconditional giving and love. The Trevor Project embodies all of these qualities.

The Great!

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

The lives we have saved.

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

The incredible people that I have had the opportunity to meet.

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

top notch professional all with the same commitment to the cause.

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

Reach all 50 states on a critical mass level that would continue to build the support for youth that feel they have no one or nowhere to turn.

I first became aware of the The Trevor Project several years ago, because I wanted to go to a pool party. What I learned there changed my view of social responsibility. From my experience as a gay kid who grew up in a highly intolerant environment, I understood the tough issues that LGBTQ youth face at a very young age--and that the consequences are sometimes, and needlessly, tragic. The Trevor Project provides lifesaving services to the under-served and at-risk LGBTQ youth population. I have watched the organization grow over the last several years, and am proud to serve on its board.

The Great!

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

the number of calls has increased dramatically to the Trevor Project's accredited helpline. I've seen that helpline, staffed entirely by volunteers, literally save lives. And I've seen the letters from parents who thank us for our work.

Ways to make it better...

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

be so humbled by the graciousness and dedication of the staff, donors, and volunteers.

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

the knowledge that my service literally saves lives. As one of our founders says: The Trevor Project provides an alternative ending to a story that is otherwise unimaginable.

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

so dedicated! I'm so proud of this board and am continually amazed at the dynamism, cooperation, unity, and dedication expressed by each member of this organization--especially the volunteers, who are the heart of the organization and its efforts.

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

extend its reach to the youth who need it most, by increasing visibility and becoming the primary resource for LGBTQ youth through our services, coordinated research, and advocacy.

Ways to make it better...

we could let our donors and volunteers know how much we care about their contributions. As the organization grows, my biggest challenge is making sure that our donors and volunteers know how crucial their efforts are to The Trevor Project's success.

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

the demand for our services is increasing a rate that challenges our infrastructure. The biggest challenge facing The Trevor Project is the need for what we do, and the increasing visibility as we reach more at-risk youth.

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

I appreciate anyone who's reading this now, especially if you aren't familiar with the Trevor Project. Thank you!!

so many great organizations, so many great causes ...all serving the greater good of the LGBT community at large. With all those deserving of recognition and respect, one stands out apart them for its singular purpose...saving lives. we've all been there once in our life, having struggled with being gay or lesbian. some have felt that struggle was not worth the fight and found themselves contemplating suicide as the way to end that struggle. their future, their lives, their unknown contribution to our future lay in the balance....this is where The Trevor Project stands alone in being there when the struggle seems to have no friends or allies. Trevor is the lifeline, the friend at the end of the rope and in the lives of thousands of people over its years of existence, was the reason they are with us today. Trevor saves lives...the single greatest act we can do for our fellow human beings.

The Great!

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

saving lives, each and every day

continue to do the great work so many are already doing around the country

The Trevor Project offers a completely unique and vital service to the youth of America who are conflicted, not only by their own developmental and identity issues, but also by the mixed messaging they are receiving from political and social media. This service is relatively new to the US, but is something I wish I had access to when I was growing up. Their simple messaging and concrete programs offer great outlets for those in need of their services.

The Great!

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

The expanded services they offer and the continued increase in calls by youth as the organization markets itself in broader based media outlets.

Ways to make it better...

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

I have been on the board for 3+ years now so I do feel as if I am part of its leadership and help run the organization. I would not change anything because this group is constantly changing everything to be current and meet the needs of its constituents.

More feedback...

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

The selfless giving of its volunteers, the incredible and effective pool of resources of its board of directors, and the agility of which the organization changes to the needs of youth via social and internet outlets.

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

I have met all the staff and they have unique ownership of the work & efforts the organizations puts out. The volunteers are incredibly motivated and return year after year because they believe in the cause and know they're making difference.

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

Offer their services in local schools around the country of acceptance education. They would also be able to open call centers in most geographic regions so the counselors would be able to relate better to the youth.

Ways to make it better...

More children had access to their Helpline. With regular outreach and media coverage the organization receives more and more calls from youth. More children need to know that they have someone to talk to so they don't take their own life.

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

Funding as donors around the country are experiencing hardships.
