My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for World Vision International, New York, NY, USA
Our family has given to World Vision over the last few years because of two simple reasons - One, we love Jesus and His call to help everyone in this world, in His name! Secondly, we also have a small farm with Ducks, a goat, a pony and misc other animals, and we love giving our sons, Stephen (7) and Michael (3) choices from which to give! Of course we have chosen Ducks one of those times, but also medicines, Bibles in children's own languages, and other items. I have just recently investigated the % overhead of different world helping organizations, and am thrilled that they are listed as one of the best organizations to give through!! Most of us never endure first hand devastating poverty here in America (we support our local food pantry too when we can because we know there is definite need here too), and it is wonderful to reach out and feed those in the most need, all so that they too may know how much our God loves them -and wants to be their God too if they do not yet know Him through Jesus!! Keep it up :) and all the best~

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Perhaps send mailers a little less often. We usually donate to only every 3rd one we receive, but would love to do more! I know it costs to print and mail and would rather see even more go direct to the people in need, although you have a great percentage at low fundraising costs!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?
We just know we are to reach out to everyone we can in need, around the world. Each person is just as loved and special to God as I am, regardless of where we live or what we believe. Everyone needs to see God's love firsthand, in order to believe :)
Why did you make your donation at this time?
Just felt the need to give again despite whatever is going on in our own lives~ Sometimes we don't and sometimes we just feel we need to ;) and want to! He always provides for us and we want to spread that around. This is His world and we are to Love one another and feed His flock...and it just feels good!
What would you tell others about this organization?
Lots of options to choose from to help -it can all be tailored to what is dear to your or your family's heart. Just follow His lead!!
