Review for Room To Read, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Results oriented, clear vision, fantastic execution of mission, Room to Read has had more impact in 10 years on global education than Andrew Carnegie did. From a skeptical tax lawyer who was dishearted in his search for a charitable organization which I could work with, John Wood and his fantastic team at Room to Read have turned me into a donor and funraising apostle.

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

building schools and libraries; organizing fundraisers; introducing potential donors;

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

very driven and results oriented; monies go to the cause, not to unnecessary overhead; inspirational

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

driven to success

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

build libraries which would reach millions of more children. Hands down the most effective use of charitable contributions I have ever seen.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
