Review for Committee on the Shelterless, Petaluma, CA, USA
We have just returned from COTS annual fundraising breakfast where over 600 people from the community came to hear about the important work COTS does to put homeless and vulnerable adults and children back on their feet, in a safe environment, restoring their self-esteem and self-confidence. The results are so positive and so powerful that there isn't a big enough meeting hall in the city to accommodate all the people that want to be part of helping COTS address this critical human need. They come to pledge funds not just for one year or two years, but five years so that COTS can develop longer term plans to help their many clients.
Was your donation impactful?
How likely is it that you would recommend that a friend donate to this group?
How likely are you to donate to this group again?
What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?
It began with small gifts...an entree cooked once a month for COTS clients. Over time as the positive results were more and more apparent our contributions increased so that now we give as much as we can afford each year.
Why did you make your donation at this time?
Because the need is always there, we reaffirmed our 5-year pledge.
What would you tell others about this organization?
We try very hard to donate to non-profits that will make good, efficient use of the donation. Of all the organizations we contribute to, we believe that none makes better use of the money they have to work with.
