Review for Union Project, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Volunteered and attended the Rib-Off, an event that was so well attended that they sold-out of ribs just past the mid-way point of the event. The organization seems to excel in motivating the local community to participate and attend its events, and the Rib-Off was no exception. The quality/value of the event was pretty strong.... areas for improvement would be in re-structuring the relationship with the participants to ensure ample supply of food for the event, and to slightly increase prices of ribs to help generate more $.

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

several events, including both UP and external functions.

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

take a critical look at pricing/fees structure for events, services, etc. to make sure the UP wasn't leaving money on the table without compromising community driven mission.

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

its personality and its commitment to mission.

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

friendly, driven, committed.

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

complete the building renovation, purchase equipment that would ease the burden of running events that had similar needs, start/bolster an endowment to augment salaries/wages of key staff/employees.

Ways to make it better...

they didn't run out of food.

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

balancing sustainability with servicing the community through its multiple business units.

One thing I'd also say is that...

keep on keeping on.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
