Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can still remember the day EAL changed my life. I was 19 years old and had nothing but a dream to attend college. A single act of kindness to award me a scholarship in 1982 changed my life forever. This year, I celebrate the legacy of EAL's mission as we awarded the 18,000th scholarship, yes, that's right. We have helped 18,000 students make their dreams come true and better their lives through education. Being EAL's President & CEO has brought my dream full circle.

Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It may seem obvious that I would give EALgreen a Five Star rating. After all, this extraordinary nonprofit shaped my life into the person I am today. With nothing bigger or more valuable than a dream, I came to the United Stated from Argentina in the early 80's. In a stroke of good luck, I met the founders of EAL who had sat out to find private sector solutions to public problems. Their pay-it-forward formula was based on their dream to help financially disadvantaged college students receive an education. Their noble intent was born out of their own experience of receiving a helping hand in their pursuit of becoming college educated. And indeed, they did. Not only they became successful corporate leaders, they believed that education was and still is the answer to many of our own problems. They had first hand-experience of the power of education. Much more than a scholarship, the EAL business model is an ingenious and pioneering model that's a triple win for businesses, society and the planet. Almost 40 years ago, Swede and Dan had a powerful vision to turn surplus inventory into savings for colleges and less waste for the environment. By engineering a marketplace of corporate donors and institutions of higher education, they created a successful new model that has help fund the college education of more than 16,000 students nationwide. Today, the EALgreen team remains committed to education. Our team is innovative, skilled and passionate about our mission to help improve the world for all.

Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

EALgreen helps solve three problems: lack of funds for college students, too much waste created by overconsumption, and the need for businesses to do well while doing good. EALgreen unique model generates scholarships for students with financial need by redistributing excess and obsolete inventory to institutions of higher education. Savings are converted into financial aid extending the useful life of obsolete products and helping students afford their education. I know - first hand - what it means to be given the opportunity to go to college. I was the first student 35 years ago to benefit from this visionary idea and innovative business model. Today, more than 15,000 students have received more than $18 million in financial aid through the partnership between EALgreen corporate donors and schools. A true win-win-win.
