My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for United Way of the Greater Capital Region, Albany, NY, USA
I had stopped giving but recently returned after a visit from the CEO and Board Chairman. I had been a major donor and thought the organization had lost it's focus. i am convinced now that they are on the right track. The chairman is a Labor Leader and I am not pro-union, but I felt his commitment to the larger community. The CEO is not typical. He is reserved, almost quiet but in researching him and I did, I found that key community, business and non profits found him to be sincere and highly effective. I am renewing my support and my company's as a result. They are not out of the woods and giving had been declining but I think they have the right people to turn it around.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Be careful about the funding changes. The organization was founded on relationships with important community causes. They need to change but carefully.
