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

Rating: 5 stars  

I first came across FSD while doing research for a paper in a developmental economics class. What really impressed me about FSD was their ground up approach and holistic outlook. I've continued to follow their progress and even considered going abroad with their program. While I eventually decided it was not the right time for me to leave my current job, as someone who did quite a bit research, I recommend their program above most of the others I looked into.

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

The way the myriad communities they have helped have developed into healthy, happy and sustainable

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

be very hopeful for the future.

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

Their wonderful holistic outlook and ground up approach.

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

Intelligent, helpful, humble, and incredibly dedicated.

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

help people and communities build the foundation for a world without poverty and hunger.

Ways to make it better...

This organization had more funding.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
