My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Crisis Aid Inc, St. Louis, MO, USA
We have a non-profit ministry called, "Monarch" which increases awareness and provides funds for the ICA Safe Home in St. Louis through the sale of jewelry & accessories. We have been supporting ICA for two and a half years and because of their integrity, radical commitment to financial accountability & wisdom and, most importantly, their heart to help others which flows from the love of the Lord, we agreed a year ago to solely give ALL our profits to ICA!
Unlike many partnerships which turn out to be a "one- way benefit" ICA works to help us succeed in our mission as well. We have partnered together for awareness events in our community as well as vendor shows to sell our jewelry. Several ladies who are part of Monarch also serve at ICA on a regular basis. We have also had the awesome privilege of serving at the Safe Home by decorating it for Christmas (& providing Christmas baskets for the girls), teaching some rescued young women in the Safe Home to make a bracelet, assisting with their Walk/Run fundraiser and providing a space for their 10th Anniversary Celebration. What they do is always done in a fashion that does not put the lime light on the organization, but rather those they are serving ... we feel like we're doing this together!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Include cards with the newsletter to make it easy to sign up for automatic withdrawal on a monthly basis. (I don't think this is currently happening?)
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
