Review for World Concern Development Organization, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I like to personally check out an organization before contributing - and since I live near the WCDO headquarters and have seen firsthand how hard they work to limit overhead and maximize the amount of funds getting out to clients around the world - this is an eyewitness vote of confidence in them. When visiting in Africa I spent time at their regional headquarters and met staff from around the world that work for the organization. Several friends of mine are in the field working for WCDO and I have been impressed by the cultural sensitivity they bring to their work, and their amazing energy. WCDO has had staff in Haiti for many years and can "put to work" the money you donate, and do so today.

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

both North America and Africa

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

use low cost digital media to get the word out about the organization

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

hard working staff, low overhead

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

highly capable, well trained, energetic

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

wow, excellent question - scale up some key initiatives

Ways to make it better...

they provided more informal video updates about the work

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

telling their story to enough people to actually build capacity into the organization

One thing I'd also say is that...

there are many great organizations, do your homework, get involved, and become a regular contributor

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
