Review from CharityNavigator
March 24, 2011
1 person found this review helpful

We sent a donation via credit card earlier this year and never heard from the Trevor Project as to whether or not they received it or even a Thank You email. Besides using Charity Navigator, we normally send a smaller donation to see if we get a response via email or letter telling us about the organization, etc. I am sorry to say that even though Charity Navigator has given them a fair rating, my partner and I give them an "F" for communicating with their donors since we didn't hear a word from them via email or otherwise......not even a Thank You.

Sincerely,

Rob

Send an email or letter letting the donor know whether they received the donation and a Thank You would be nice.

As an eighteen year-old just about to enter college, I know that when I was at a peak of self-discovery and realizing who I am, there were so many questions that I had, so many things that I wish I could ask my parents. The problem? I couldn't, because my parents and family are homophobic. I cried myself to sleep many nights, wondering what would happen if I turned out to be gay, wondering if my family and friends would accept me. There were times when I didn't know if I could make it through all of the stress and worries. Luckily, I opened myself up to a few close friends around me who were there to help me along the way. I was willing to open myself up and take a risk with a friend to seek the support I needed, but I realize that for many youth, that's just too big of a risk to take. Having people from The Trevor Project there at any time to talk with you and help you through those personal and stressful moments in your life is such a valuable tool to have. If you feel like you cannot open up to anyone, if you feel like you need to talk with someone to ease your mind and let yourself have some peace, please, don't hesitate to call. It's important to know that The Trevor Project isn't there to make up your mind about who you are, they're there to let you know that no matter who you are, you're someone special. I am proud to be a young college student actively donating to The Trevor Project as a Lifeline Club member, and proudly support this organization and everything it does to serve the LGBTQ community.

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

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

The Trevor Project is working hard to ease worries of youth who may be confused and worried about who they are on their journey through self-discovery.

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

truly magnificent. These are caring individuals who want nothing more than to see youth live peaceful and prosperous lives, regardless of gender preferences.

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

expand its call center, and work towards a global outreach in bringing peace to LGBTQ youth.

I recently launched a website aimed towards helping gay teens feel not so alone. In doing so, I researched many LGBT sites and programs with a shared goal of helping gay teens live long, happy, healthy lives. The Trevor Project was the best one I found, with the history and successes to prove it.

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

Get the word out more. Advertise on American Idol, etc. Be made more aware of by more gay teens. I'd spend all 10 million bucks on advertising media, every teen magazine, etc. Every gay teen needs to know about The Trevor Project.

The Trevor Project provides an important service to our youth. To be able to talk to someone when they are in need. Friends and family, even though close, are sometimes very hard to turn to when a gay teen is thinking about suicide. The Trevor Project provides a live person there to talk to these youth. They have also played a key role through the country in gay teen and youth suicide awareness through thought provoking marketing strategies.

The Great!

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

the entire country. Their marketing and helpline has affected the entire country.

These days, you get overwhelmed with the number of non-profits out there - and it's hard to tell between them. As an adult having lived in New Orleans, San Francisco, and Manhattan - Trevor is the ONLY one I've noticed in each city - through personal stories. Of course, I've met so many volunteers thrilled with the training who felt that they were given the tools to actually make a difference in the community. But also, I've run into people who've actually used the helpline before they had the means to move to a more gay-friendly environment - and Trevor helped them get through. Bravo.

The Trevor Project is close to my heart. Growing up gay was difficult for me & many times I contemplated suicide while spending my youth in Montana...I really had know where to turn, thankfully by the grace of God, I made it through. The Trevor Project is a great organization that I wish I had as a child...a help line to assure all youth that they are perfect the way they are. Their continued dedication to the LGBT Community & broader community of youth certainly deserves to be recognized.

The Great!
