My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PROUD FOUNDATION INC, Saint Paul, MN, USA
Here is my personal experience with supporting The Proud Foundation. This charity goes way beyond offering temporary relief for immediate needs. It chooses to put enormous energy, creativity and heart into the long-term well being of those they help. Its programs are more than a safety net. One of their major initiatives is helping veterans who are struggling financially. They’re doing this by educating vets through digital business literacy programs, and they even build micro-businesses for these vets, businesses that generate a solid ongoing income and even create jobs. Proud is developing programs like this for other vulnerable and struggling groups right now, and everything they’re doing is practical, actionable, teachable, and repeatable. I believe Proud is a non-profit that has dedicated itself totally to releasing people from our worsening economic and spiritual ills: poverty, erosion of real income, chronic debt, and indentured-servitude “employment” to soulless corporations.
