Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

As I read the reviews of WWP I am stunned that people think that Mr. Nardizzi's salary is high. If you drill down in the most recent IRS 990, you will see that his actual compensation is about $160K. He gets further incentives to raise funds bringing his total to $319K. That is CHEAP people. Compare salary levels with other non-profits and you will be amazed. Furthermore, what do you think lead staff of an organization should be paid to run a national organization?

While I question other aspects of the WWP financial statement, the compensation issue is not as important as direct application of the funds. WWP should be granting all funds collected each year after expenses. Why do we limit non-profits but think it is perfectly OK for corporations to bestow high wages on staff? You get what you pay for....let's look at total numbers of Warriors and families served for the money raised!

Review for Seattle Tilth Association Inc, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Seattle Tilth is on the move to educate and activate the community in growing its own food here in Seattle and the surrounding community. They provide the best information for what to grow and how to grow it! The urban food movement is growing by leaps and bounds. I like it that their work teaches us how to stop stormwater polllution with safe gardening techniques.

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

The creative ways they communicate with their audience to engage you to garden, help others, use best practices, etc.

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

Very well informed and good communicators.

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

Spread the word more effectively using local media, purchase property that can be converted to gardening "parks."

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
