Review for Doctors Without Borders USA Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DWB (MSF) is an incredible organization. No one else really can do what they do - providing care to the places that need it most.

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

Reduce direct mail, especially to me. My donation is not influenced by it, and your DM costs to me must be at least $20+ per year.

Review for ioby, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

ioby is an incredible organization that might well change the nature of philanthropy.

It tackles larger issues by encouraging projects on a local level. By making everything local, issues become personal; impact can be seen immediately; and people become more engaged with their communities.

The staff--comprised mostly of founders--is smart, efficient, and relentless. Technology is core to how they help communities, but they are unafraid to use modern tools to stay lean.

ioby is an organization that solves problems in a systemic way, rather than purely focusing on symptoms, and for that reason and many others too numerous to list, I am a committed supporter
