FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE SD INC
November 3, 2009
Friendship Circle of SD has helped my brother who has a very rare syndrome emensly. Every time I speak with him, he tells me about the next activity or event coming up. Thanks to Friendship Circle, he now has a social, educational and stimulating schedule to keep him busy during evenings and weekends. This is very important to me, since I live in Europe and am unable to spend time with him myself. I am a program director of an international European non-profit organization. I have extensive experience with non-profit organizations, and I have been very impressed with how efficeint friendship circle is run both with focus on every detail of the programs themselves, the care for each individal involved, and in the meticulous budgeting of the organization. I feel confident when donating to Friendship Circle, because almost all resources are spent directly on providing programs. I wish it were possible to make more funds available to Friendship Circle which in turn would benefit more special needs children and provide them with more programing.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing how happy and fulfilled my brother has become thanks to his involvment. He has done unbeleivable things such as surfing which would never have been possible without Frienship circle. I was amazed when he proudly announced that he could surf!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how they involve everyone. They encourage everyone to use their tallents to help Friendship circle. It makes each person involved feel worthwhile and experience the satisfaction of generousity and teamwork.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind and attentive. Open to ideas and advice.
