Review for ACTERRA: Action for a Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked for Acterra as a volunteer. The organization has vision, focus and a passion for the environment. They take thoughtful and intelligent steps to achieve their goals. Acterra's "green@home" program is one example of their vision of sustainability. Under the direction of trained volunteers, homeowners learn simple steps to reduce their overall consumption. Small steps, huge dividends.

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

that their enthusiasm is contagious.

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

sincere, smart and dedicated.

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

go nationally with various programs.

Ways to make it better...

I have only had positive experiences.

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

raising funds in a down economy.

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

It's refreshing to work with people who are so passionate about what they do.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
