Review for Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a resident and as a volunteer, I find this to be an excellent non profit. They are well organized. As a volunteer, I found the employees to be very welcoming and they made sure that my experience as a volunteer was incredibly rewarding, from beginning to end. As a resident, I feel very grateful to have such a unique non profit available to provide a valuable link between the community and nature, education and inspiration.

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

the number of projects they have been able to complete, phenomenal!

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

I don't know, give everyone raises!

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

hard to say, the people are fabulous, and I ended up enjoying them as much as the beautiful park/river natural environment!

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

representative of the diverse populations that make up San Jose, all different ages, ethnicities... I felt very comfortable there.

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

complete all their projects, and hire more staff to develop even more programs for children, adults, pets, families... it would be amazing! Get people out of their homes and out in nature!

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to commit more time.

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

current economic situation.

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

This organization is one of the "crown jewels" in downtown San Jose... It is part of what makes downtown San Jose so cool!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
