Review for La Peña Cultural Center, Inc., Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As many others have commented, La Peña is wonderfully unique place that brings many cultures together effectively. I am always impressed by the high quality of the programming which brings together such diverse experiences in one venue. I have been a donor over many years. I donate because I know my dollars are going a long way in achieving the results to which the Center aspires. In addition I am confident that none of my funds are being wasted. I have examined the budget and know the staff assumes a high level of responsability in making the Center function on a tight budget. If you have not been there, be sure to check out the calendar and go!

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

exciting young people to become interested in the arts and social justice

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get the word out to a bigger audience about what we offer

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

its capacity to bring so many different kinds of people together

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

gain access to the media to make its outstanding programming widely viewed. It could also take its programs to the schools.

Ways to make it better...

the center had more financial resources to promote visiting artist-speakers

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

those related to survival in a time of diminishing investment in the arts

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
