Review for Hebrew Free Loan Assn, Beachwood, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began volunteering for HFLA about eight years ago. From the first loan committee meeting, I was inspired by the enormous impact an interest-free loan had on our clients. So often, our loan was the difference between success and failure: going to college or staying home, fixing a car or losing a job, escaping a payday loan (as high as 700% interest) or declaring bankruptcy. There are over 25,000 stories like this in Northeast Ohio! Because the repayment rate is over 97%, the money recycles for generations (the organization is 111 years old as I write this). I can't think of an organization that accomplishes more with less.

Review for Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, Inc., Hollywood, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a diabetes advocate, I've been deeply moved by the work of the DRI. Their researchers and staff are extraordinarily passionate and dedicate to diabetes cure. Their philosophy of working closely with others and sharing their work makes them a focal point for cure-focused research around the world.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I've interviewed many of the staff, toured the facilities, and supported their work through fundraising and outreach.
