Review for Modest Needs Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with many good causes, but this is the best. It goes right to the heart of one single event (a hospital bill, a layoff, a sick child)can start a downward spiral for a family without the resources to meet that single need. This organization is about the mammoth impact of individuals coming together with spare change, a few dollars or even a single dollar.

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

The lives of those who have been helped. Read a few thank you notes from those whose mdoest request has been funded.

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

Do everything possible to grow awareness of Modest Needs. Oprah Winfrey is needed!

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

You can actually see the impact on the individuals who have been helped.

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

Have not met

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

Help about 15,000 families with a modest, one-time emergency.

Ways to make it better...

Modest Needs has consistently improved its website, expanded the types of grants one may apply for. I cannot think of any way to improve the experience.

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

Getting added exposure.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
