When I retired from medicine, my wife and I became volunteers at the Heard Museum.
We joined the museum guild, became Las Guias members (docents),and do other volunteer activities including participation in the annual Spring Fair, and working in the Museum Shop. We contribute financially.
We have taken advantage of a magnificient education about the Southwest Indians, their art, history and culture. Through our activities and those of the many other volunteers, we can help educate visitors and create good will toward the Heard Museum.
This has been possible because of the professional staff and the passionate Heard Guild members who so selfishly give their time and talents.
The Heard Museum is top notch nonprofit organization that I would recommend to anyone who wants to make a difference by volunteering.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my education about and passion for American Indian art
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
making a difference
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
(1)create a fund to provide for charitable gift annuities, thereby creating more capital for ongoing operations.
(2)increase the underpaid staff and continue to look for talented staff members
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every week
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
