My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Pittsfield, MA, USA
BEAT has an exceptional reputation, which is what brought me to them this past summer in 2018. Ever since meeting Jane and the staff of BEAT, I have wondered why I hadn't interacted with BEAT before. Their work sparks solutions and action revolving around local social and environmental issues. They put on many river clean ups, they have weekly invasive species removal gatherings, they sponsor or host a number of local initiatives that protect our local wildlife, and so much more. One of the unique ways that this nonprofit has assisted the communities is in how they support other nonprofits and community members. They provide many volunteer opportunities, internship opportunities, public education and outreach, and are always willing to spread the work about other organization's events, fundraisers, and opportunities as well. BEAT is an important part of the Berkshire County because they inspire others to join in their efforts to improve our community, as well as for others to create their own opportunities to make our world a better place.
