Review for The Generation Project Inc, Chicago, IL, USA
The Generation Project has inspired me to expand my interest in bettering the k-12 education system and closing the achievement gap. The Generation Project's unique model allows donors to give back in a way that best reflects a person's individual interest and thus, donors connect with the process on a personal level. By creating more transparency, donors can see the difference they are making first hand and track their donations throughout the entire process.
The Generation Project really lets donors engage with their community and come up with innovative ideas in order to improve low income schools. It is both easy and efficient for donors to be in charge of how and where their donations are used which allows for a very rewarding experience.

It is remarkable to see so many student groups interested in giving back to to the community.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase the number of cities where donations can be made in order to get more people involved with the organization and to spread awareness about the need for more resources in low income schools.
