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

Rating: 5 stars  

Room to Read is an organization unlike any other. Aside from their wonderful, knowledgable and incredibly talented employees, they also boast an amazing volunteer chapter network (which I am proudly a member of) represented within 52 countries.

It's this volunteer chapter network and Room to Read's incredible commitment to keeping internal costs low, that has enabled the organization to contribute 83% of annual revenue in 2012 directly to projects. In addition, they have been recognized for seven consecutive years with Charity Navigator's coveted 4-star rating for their commitment to accountability and transparency.

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

Create a position for myself to work by expanding operations to Canada and opening a small remote office.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
