I have worked with the Salesian Missions on their audit committee for several years. With each passing year my respect for the organization grows. The staff and management have demonstrated a determined quiet commitment to their many causes. Their attention to making sure that the organization meets and exceeds all regulations shows their professionalism.

Having had the chance to get involved with charities of all types, the Salesian Missions stands out to me as one of the best organizations when it comes to keeping its donors posted on the accomplishments the group has made with its missions throughout the world, and its need to keep the momentum going with the support of its donors. The people at Salesian Missions truly live by their words by "giving hope to millions of youth around the globe.

While there are children who need help in the US, there are many more needy children in third world countries that don't have any access to the support and programs kids in the US have. Their situations seem hopeless, at least until the Salesian priests, brothers and missionaries take over. Driven by the teachings of John Bosco, the Salesians work tirelessly to teach children to fish. They live amongst the people to make sure change happens.

As a non-profit organization, Salesian Missions is highly accountable. If you want to invest in an organization that is completely transparent and does a great job of showing the impact, Salesian Missions is the organization to support.

I am an independent contractor who has and is blessed to work with Salesian Missions. To a person, everyone who works for Salesian Missions is so incredibly passionate about and dedicated to their work around the world in providing education, health, clean water, and a better life to poor children. I believe their services cover some 132 countries. It is stimulating and very motivating to always do the best we can to support the Salesian Missions efforts. I feel I am a better person knowing that there are real people making a difference in the lives of others lass fortunate than we. This surely helps bring our world together, and God knows, we need this. God bless everyone at Salesian for their belief in the world's youth!

Gathering small donations from across the United States, the Salesians use the money to build where there is devastation, give hop where there is hopelessness, and raise up the youth from their poor, sad and undeserved lot in life. The Salesians are a vital force and do wonderful, wonderful work, every day in over 100 countries. It is a pleasure to give, and see the gifts invested in our fellow man. Bravo Salesians, you are the best!!

I choose to support Salesian Missions - and have for many years - because of the outstanding they work they do with children in the most impoverished areas of the world, not only to feed and cloth them but to provide educational opportunities and most of all, hope in their world filled with little to be hopeful about...all with the Catholic values I hold dear. I am thankful for all they do and for the opportunity to support them in their most worthy missions.
