My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Frances and Henry Riecken Foundation, Inc., Emerald Hills, CA, USA
As a Communications Advisor with The Riecken Community LIbraries, I see everyday how the entire organization works with limited resources to truly bring change to communities in poor, generally remote, regions of Honduras and Guatemala. Access to information - through books, dynamic programs, training and community gatherings - is what each Riecken Community Library is about. Anyone considering donating to their work should be pleased to learn that the Riecken Community Library model is a sustainable one - requiring partnership between the community, its municipality and the Riecken Foundation. The deep commitment of local staff and volunteers is truly amazing to behold.
Review for Disabled Veterans National Foundation, Lanham, MD, USA
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation has provided Heart of Horse Sense (HOHS) with a very generous grant that will be used to increase access by at-risk Veterans to our equine assisted therapy programs. These therapies have been shown to bring often life-saving results to Veterans, particularly those with PTSD. We are pleased that the goals of our two organizations are so close in alignment and are most appreciative of this support from The Disabled Veterans National Foundation. They have also made it easy for us to work together to provide critical visibility to our causes.
