Review for Bloomington Symphony Orchestra, Bloomington, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a professor of nonprofit management at the top ranked (US News) program in the country. It is also my pleasure to donate to the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra and to serve as their sometime consultant on governance and strategic planning. I also helped paint their office!! In the end, this is a great volunteer-driven organization with a terrific artistic director, an energetic board and volunteer cohort, who produce amazing concerts. If you attended their Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique last month, your hair would still be standing on end. Go, BSO!!

Review for Stone Belt Arc, Inc., Bloomington, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a university educator in nonprofit management and experienced board member, I came to the Stone Belt Arc board with high expectations. The board takes its fiduciary duties very seriously; we meet all of the governance standards of multiple accrediting agencies. Board meetings are open to the public and "transparency" is written into the bylaws. The staff have long tenures within the organization and the senior staff, in fact, are considered experts in the field statewide. While every organization can become even better -- and Stone Belt is no exception here -- my gifts of time, money and expertise have always been used appropriately and carefully.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
