The Seany Foundation
July 22, 2009

I have been involved with The Seany Foundation for 6 months and they have continued to put on fun and exciting events that community members of all ages can enjoy. The foundation is dedicated to eradicating childhood cancer and I am convinced they will continue to have a significant impact in the lives of many families.

The Great!

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

Being able to draw in community members of all ages. The foundation has such character, similar to a mom and pop restaurant; they make involvement in their event a memorable and personal experience that makes you want to get involved.

Ways to make it better...

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

do nothing different.

More feedback

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

the eclectic mix of different events the foundation organizes. They are committed to their cause and make sure that their donors are having a great time in the process and that their support is appreciated.

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

extremely kind and welcoming. You can tell that the people working for the foundation are there because they want to be.

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

fulfill it's current goals as well as future goals like re-opening the physical therapy rehab pool at Children's Hospital, opening a special exhibit at the San Diego Zoo, etc. The founders continue to have numerous ideas that will benefit the community.

Ways to make it better...

I would have known about them earlier.

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

finding big sponsors and donors. Most companies already have a charity of choice they contribute to and it seems as though they only way to get your foot in the door is to have a personal connection.

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

The Seany Foundation deserves to win the great non-profits awards. They have raised almost $400,000 in just a few years and most of that has been from small donations from the community.
