Review for Heartwood, Inc., Murfreesboro, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Heartwood is a link between small groups of people or individuals who would otherwise feel isolated in their work to protect the forests in their community. Heartwood helps these individuals/groups get the tool and information that they need to pursue their specific goals. They use the resources they have very efficiently.

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

learning how to do forest protection work.

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

have them be a little better at getting donations from their own members (if only their members had more money that they could give.)

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

the people who we get to meet and work with on our common and individual goals.

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

very dedicated. Most were not paid, and the ones who were paid, we not doing this work just to get a pay check.

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

it could help a whole lot more people and groups and spend all of its time doing the work and none of its time fund raising to do the work.

Ways to make it better...

the group had more money to help pay the expenses of the volunteers so we didn't have to work extra at our "day jobs" to be able to be volunteers.

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

how many areas are under threat and in need of our help.

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

it has been amazing how Heartwood has been able to find such a diverse experience and expertise pool over the past 20 years.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
