Review for HENDERSON COUNTY COUNCIL ON AGING INC, Hendersonvlle, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Council on Aging of Henderson County LOST about $80,000 in funding from the United Way because our 990 nonprofit tax form showed
about 30+% in administrative costs. We talked to our CPA and the IRS and
they both agreed we could accurately report the costs differently and there would be no problem. Our actual adminstrative costs are about 12%
We have filed amended 990 forms. our fundraising has enabled us to keep our meals on wheels program on track with no loss in service. Of course we can definitely use more contributions.

I KNEW MARJORIE KEIFFER THE DIRECTOR OF COA BACK IN THE 1980'S AND KEPT HEARING ABOUT ALL OF THE GOOD WORK THEY WERE DOING.WHEN I WAS ASKED TO BE ON THE BOARD IN THE 90'S I HAD TO SAY YES. THE MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAM ITSELF DOES SO MUCH GOOD FOR PEOPLE JUST THE HUMAN CONTACT ONCE A DAY IS INVALUABLE TO THEM.THEY REALLY MAKE GOOD USE OF THEIR RESOURCES.PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING THEM. THIS WOULDBE A GOOD USE OF YOUR TIME AND /OR MONEY. WENDELL CAPES

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

Working with these really dedicated people.

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

EXECELLENT

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

IMPROVE A LOT OF LIVES OF OUR PEOPLE

Ways to make it better...

IF WE HAD MORE FUNDS TO MEET ALL OF THE NEEDS IN HENDERSON COUNTY FOR THE AGING.

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

HAVING ENOUGH FUNDS TO MEET THE INCREASING NEEDS IN THIS ECONOMY

One thing I'd also say is that...

HELP THIS GOOD ORGANIZATION IF YOU CAN
