UMR has given me a way to give back to my community as well as many individuals around the world who are less fortunate. I have been working with them for over 2 years and have done a variety of things from dental kit drives to fundraising for Yemen.

I love their work in giving back to the community here in the United States and in several countries abroad. They operate in countries where supplies such as food, clothing, and essentials are much needed. Their recent campaign, #Awinterlikeneverbefore was awesome, they did an amazing job!

It was great to be able to participate in projects and fundraisers for the greater good and make lifelong connections along the way.

UMR has a vast reach all across the globe and I am proud to be a volunteer for this organization. I love that as my college chapter and I raise money towards UMR campaigns, we can see posts on the UMR headquarters' social media pages that show where to who this money is going and how much we are making a difference.

UMR is doing incredible work throughout so many parts of the world where people are in dire need of not only relief and assistance, but are looking for sustainable development that will empower their local community and provide long term opportunities for growth. Many of their projects that I have donated to that appealed to me focus on creating long-lasting solutions to ongoing challenges that will improve the lives of not only one individual or one family but whole communities and societies (although they do great work providing direct aid to individuals and families as well). Examples include their Adopt-A-Village project which seeks to boost the capacities of a specific Kenyan county across multiple sectors as well as their Jasmine project which focuses on female empowerment in the Middle East by providing professional development and vocational training. When I donate to this organization and their projects, I feel that my contributions go much further in providing enduring change than they would to other organizations. Highly recommend contributing to and my only hope is that they continue to expand these incredible projects more broadly!

I have had a longstanding relationship with UMR --as a volunteer, as well as a donor. To me, transparency is really important especially when it comes to charitable organizations. UMR has consistently proven that they value donor satisfaction by periodically communicating impact stories and asking for feedback. To me as a donor, this not only shows that the organization deeply cares about donor values but also respects and aligns their projects based on donor interests. My experience with UMR has been outstanding!

UMR has raised a lot of money for really important causes, and they have always been transparent with the work that they do. I like that they partner with local organizations in many countries because that shows that they are using every available resource to help build up local communities in the places that they work.
