GLOBAL GALLERY INC
February 10, 2010

I first started volunteering with Global Gallery over 4 years ago. The fist time I set foot into the door, I grabbed a volunteer application. The store had a "spirit" that moved me. The staff was friendly, I loved the art pieces, and I felt truly the organization was inviting me to be a part of it. So, I joined and have been with Global Gallery ever since. This organization is special in the community, not only with its mission, but with the experience it can provide for others. It has given me a purpose in this city and in my life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working personally with our artisans Bolivia- that is meeting the crafters who make the products. Also, working and volunteering with Community Outreach events, such as our International Dinner that served over 500 people last year in one evening.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

seek more funding.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the vast effects it has had only my life. I've been educated in new ways to think about the everyday choices I make. I now make different choices than I used to.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring people from all walks of life, looking to enrich their lives and others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Update all the computer equiptment, remodel all the buildings ,and seek to buy at least one of them, and most importantly, provide a salary for our Director and bonuses for all the staff and gifts for all the volunteers and Board Members.

Ways to make it better...

our Executive Director had a paid salary, so she could spend more time with all aspects pf the organization. Also, if we had funding for technology and operations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

simply funding and commitment from the community.
