THE SAMFund
July 8, 2009

The SamFund fills what was formerly a void in services and opportunities for young-adult survivors. Samantha Watson's vision, passion, and first-hand knowledge is helping men and women reestablish themselves after treatment. It is an amazing organization that helps an often overlooked population.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the tangible opportunities it provides young adults to be able to launch independent lives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not be able to do as good a job as Samantha and her team.

More feedback

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

watching Samantha's passion and vision take life. She started with a dream, and has grown a vibrant organization that is thriving.

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

dedicated, compassionate, insightful, and able to have fun while helping others.

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

really change the lives of young adult cancer survivors.

Ways to make it better...

the economic climate was different, and the Samfund was able to provide all applicants with scholarships or grants.

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

financial. It has far more applicants than the current climate allows for funding.

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

THe SamFund is one of a kind.
