Review for Greater Augusta Arts Council, Inc., Augusta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Greater Augusta Arts Council is full of fabulous people who help promote the fine arts in the Augusta Area. I've been able to see first-hand the long hours and stressful days that they put in working for their cause. They are all very dedicated at determined to spread education of the fine arts to every person in our area, with no age, color, gender, ethnic, or racial prejudices. They are all very loving and supportive of every good cause they come across.

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

the youth of augusta who have benefitted from summer programs funded through grants written for, and attained by, the GAAC. Also jsut generally in the community. I go to put in job applications and I hear, "Hey! You're that girl from First Friday!"

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

not touch a thing but the funding. that i'd raise substantially.

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

the love that radiates off of all the people in the office and who are associated with the Council.

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

soooo accepting and pleasant. I count them all as dear freinds and associates and have grown close to them over my years of volunteering.

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

change the world, of course. :)

Ways to make it better...

Santa Clause of Jesus himself had shown up! and only then would it have been better.

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

funding. The heart, drive, and wit is already there - but the funding is lacking becuase of the economic times.

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

if you've never volunteered with the GAAC staff, you really should. It's a blast.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
