My family and I have been donors to and volunteers at Umoja for the past 6 or 7 years. We've been around long enough to see the impact that our modest donation makes in the hands of Umoja' very capable, talented and dedicated staff and board members. Most of the people we've met eat, breathe and sleep Umoja. My donations have been money well spent by people who are able get a huge amount of bang for my buck. This organization meets a very real need in an underserved/non-served group of Chicago students...and they succeed, OH BOY do they succeed. Statistically and anecdotally I see them changing lives. The organization partners with communities, the school system, the students and other nonprofits make an unfair world a little more fair for the students they serve. I feel very lucky to have been a tiny part of their success stories.

None. I love these guys.

Umoja is an amazing organization that has dedicated tremendous effort to refine their model in order to remain sustainable, efficient and effective to the thousands of young people that they impact through their work. I worked there in the past and currently have the privilege of working for a foundation that funds their work. I have seen first hand the impact of their work on teachers, school culture and most importantly on the lives of minority youth who often don't have the chance to reach their potential due to numerous life adversities. Umoja in many ways addresses these barriers. I am proud to know them.

I've been involved with Umoja for over a decade. I first became aware of the organization through my work at the McCormick Foundation. I was so impressed with Umoja's impact, I happily joined its board when asked. My tenure as a board member came to an end several years ago, but I'm still a supporter of the organization. Umoja's staff is incredibly skilled at working with youth from urban environments, inspiring them to dream big dreams, and helping them achieve those dreams. The organization has a very impressive track record in helping academically at-risk youth find their way to post-secondary opportunities. Umoja consistently accomplishes great things, and are certainly worthy of ongoing support.
