Review for Soar Foundation, Union City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a SOAR donor since mid-90's. I like and trust this grass-root charity organization. All workers in SOAR are retired professional volunteers. The overhead oost is very low (only a few percent for mailing and printing). Most recipients are rural minority students in China. Every year close to two thousand students were benefited from SOAR scholarships.

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

I have seen the results of this organization in three presentations from volunteers coming back from fact-finding trips in China. All volunteers are professionals. A truly grass-root charity with a very worthy goal of giving a helping-hand to minorities.

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

What I've enjoyed the most with SOAR is that all my donation goes to very needy minority students in rural China. Without it, their minds will be wasted.

Ways to make it better...

My experience would have been better if I had more money to donate a decade ago because more needy students would have been benefied by the donations.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
