Review for The Samfund, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a survivor of cancer the SAMfund has helped to provide me with assistance in persueing my dreams. Besides the monetary assistance, I have seen and met other survivors who have over come the difficulties they have been faced with in their early lives and it has helped give me confidence to face my own difficulties. It has made an impact on my life that I am forever gratefull for.

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

The personal connection that the heads of the organization have with thier recipients. They truly care about the individual and have made efforts to stay connected to me on a personal level.

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

incredibly sincere. The people involved with the SAMfund truly have a deep conviction to their cause.

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

change the lives of so many people who have had an unfair start to their adult lives. In these times it is difficult enough for young adults to establish themselves. Never mind the incredable set back cancer can be.

Ways to make it better...

the organization could have more resources to assist and aid.

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

fund raising. They are still a relatively small organization who is growing fast and need to find ways to meet the demands of an evergrowing population.

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

organizations like this are a shining beacon of hope for the human spirit. The fact that people would truly dedicate their lives to others in this manor is amazing.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
