My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Captain Planet Foundation, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA
My relationship with Captain Planet Foundation began in October of 2011 when I was hired as the Grant and Education Administrative Intern. During my time at CPF I acquired invaluable experience learning about the grant screening process and the methods utilized by the Foundation in choosing grants to fund. Like many nonprofits, CPF was short staffed and had a limited budget. Yet what sets Captain Planet Foundation apart from other NGO's with similar restraints is their ability to reach thousands of children all over the world despite their monetary and administrative limitations. This always- and still does- amaze me and is a testemony to the effectiveness of both their grant screening process- which selects only those programs that will function indefinitely, and the dedication of its employees. It is only a matter of time before Captain Planet Foundation becomes one of the largest, most successful nonprofits in the world!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
reviewing grants, selecting grants to be funded, working events during which the Foundation raised thousands of dollars to be awarded to environmental educational activities.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Hire more staff to promote inter-office organization.
