Review for Grassroots.org, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I discovered grassroots.org quite by chance. We applied for their services and now are receiving their phone service for free (for a year). The service is much better than the one we had been paying for over 3 years. We also are utilizing their logo design service which has been amazing! So amazing - we can't truly decide. We are close though. We also plan on utilizing the web hosting services too once ours expires.

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

The services they offer to nonprofits is immeasurable and any contact we have had with them has been professional and friendly.

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

Surprisingly many times in signing up for services with others you feel that you are one of thousands, not with them. They have very quick turn around time and are clear and concise in explaining their services and how to utilize them.

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

Friendly, professional and courteous.

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

Extend it's reach, increase programs and services and grow to further many more great causes.

Review for Breath of Hope Inc., Charlottesville, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our daughter was diagnosed with CDH and later died of CDH. We started Breath of Hope to be a network of families to help support families at the most devastating period of their lives. We wanted to give hope - where there is none. Even if your child does not live, there is hope that one day another family may not have to loose their own child. Breath of Hope was set up to be a public nonprofit organization run by volunteers who could do so in honor or memory of their children. It is a non-stock corporation - which means it is owned by no one person. Our Board of directors votes on all issues and approves the budgets, programs and financial issues. We serve anyone who contacts our organization. If you wish to have services you must contact our organization through our website not through the social media networks we are currently using.

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

Breath of Hope has directed funds to support Medical Research. We have had 34 states through the help of our families and friends issue Proclamations for Awareness Day since 2007. We had the US Senate unanimously pass Resolution 204.

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

More funding for Programs such as our Expectant/New Parents Materials, Materials for Grieving Parents, our Scholarship Program and to further programs which are needed to help families. We also need more volunteers to help further our cause.

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

Though helping others there is healing for yourself. Sharing the joy and pride families have for their amazing children.

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

All our volunteers have contributed amazing things and our families continue to amaze me how they step forward and help one another.

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

Bring congenital diaphragmatic hernia to the forefront so everyone would be aware of it. Further medical research so that the survival rates would improve. Further education for therapeutic studies to improve or avoid many residuals from CDH.

Ways to make it better...

All would realize that Breath of Hope is an organization not run by one individual.

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

Funding and volunteers - all nonprofits struggle with both needs to further their programs and efforts.
