Numerous wonderful experience with TPRF since its existence
I’ve had the chance to serve on the Board of Directors for two non-profits, as a Programs Director of a third, and currently as a partner in a company that provides fundraising services to this sector. I have three observations about TPRF that I’d like to share.
First, by many criteria, TPRF is a tiny organization. But its size belies its impact. It leverages its effectiveness through partnerships with larger entities that respect its management and responsiveness. Over 50 such charitable organizations have co-ventured with TPRF on urgent humanitarian projects dealing with food or water - organizations such as Oxfam and Mercy Corps.
Secondly, it publishes externally audited financial statements annually. It should be noted that it surpasses the high standards for financial transparency as recognized by third parties such as Charity Navigator and GuideStar.
And finally, it distinguishes itself in its peace work. It actively creates programs that address peace as a basic human right, like the right to food and water. And while it does this at a very human and individual level, the uniqueness of this work has been recognized by significant global entities such as the United Nations Association and the European Parliament.
In summary, the actions of TPRF over the past 11 years have withstood the tests of time and scrutiny and speak with much more authority than I ever could.
