Review for Foundation for Sustainable Development, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I chose to volunteer with FSD because I strongly believe that their development model is the only real long-term solution to economic and social development. FSD knows that true and lasting development must come from within the community and thus works with local organizations that can respond to the communities needs most effectively. The people in the San Francisco office and the staff members abroad are all so enthusiastic and committed to the work they're doing, and it shows every day.

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

Every day in our San Francisco office we hear stories from organizations we work with about how our support has allowed their organization to expand their services, or improve their outreach, or allowed them in some way to serve more people in need.

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

Knowing that I am supporting the work of a development organization that is so in-line with my own beliefs about international development.

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

Amazing! Everyone is enthusiastic and committed.

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

change the world. With so much less than that, they are already doing so much.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
