one of the more effective and respected organizations i am aware of. it is a pleasure to work with such committed board members, staff, and volunteers to protect and increase awareness regarding the Great Salt Lake and its magnificent aesthetic, economic, and ecologically critical values.
I choose the non-profits I support carefully and this is the one I support the most. We are a very small organization with a big job. I have been with FRIENDS for one year and it has been a lot of hard yet rewarding work. Our full-time director donates all of her time and our dedicated volunteer board goes above and beyond with their support. With the help of many enthusiastic volunteers, our wonderfully gifted Education and Outreach Director takes groups of 4th graders to the lake and teach them why it is so important. The GSL is facing some significant threats and FRIENDS speaks on behalf of the lake. FRIENDS has been protecting this hemispherically important ecosystem since 1994 and will be here for many years to come. I am proud to be a part of this organization.
