My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Sky Cross, Inc., San Antonio, TX, USA
I've known SkyCross' founders Terry and Kathy Bliquez for years. Since they founded Sky Cross, I was led to become involved after my husband and I founded our own consulting firm. When we became aware of their need for a website, Carl and I donated the resources the charity needed to help get their message out to a broader audience. I was fortunate to be able to participate in one of the Sky Cross deliveries from pick up to transport and final delivery to a needy community nearby Nuevo Laredo. The children and families were so appreciative of these deliveries, it was not difficult to recommit to the organization's mission. When we donate to Sky Cross, and when we are asked about charities, we make sure our friends learn about Sky Cross' unique approach - 100% of all donations go directly to efforts and support of their needy community. After all these years, Sky Cross has been able to stick to this premise. This is why I believe Sky Cross is a 5 Star charity.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
visits to the communities Sky Cross supports and in conversation with friends who are seeking a donor who uses contributions solely for services, not for G&A or overhead.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
include a statement in Sky Cross literature, paper and online, that describes how the organization plans to preserve it's core values of pure volunteerism for the future.
