My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CityTeam Ministries, San Jose, CA, USA
For the past 15 years I have been a donor and a volunteer. I fell in love with the organization many years ago when I saw on a daily basis the struggles that men, women and children have right here in the Bay Area. Cityteam helps them physically, emotionally, spriritually - plus provide education and job skills so they can become gainfully employeed or go to college. They are a very caring organization. Their small staff works very hard.
I found them to explain their budget very clearly to me when I asked. My donations are used right here in Santa Clara County. They don't go overseas. (Even though their international work is great too). Of a $20M budget - only $2M goes to international. The international division is primarily supported by a few solid Christian Foundations - not alot of individual donors like the San Jose programs. It is remarkable what they can do with such alittle amount of money. If you want more information on their financials - give the controller a call - I found him very helpful.
Cityteam is my primary charity of choice. Taking a tour is a great way to see how your funds are used on a dialy basis in the location or program that you choose - San Jose, SF, Oakland, Portland, Philadelphia or International. They asked me how I wanted my funds to be used and I appreciated that.
