Review for HEAR Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a member of the HEAR Scholarship Committee. I was extremely impressed with the work that HEAR is doing to promote higher education for young people right here in this country. HEAR does a lot of fantastic work in developing nations as well. HEAR is also working for equality in education here it the United States through its scholarship program. HEAR is helping bright young people afford a college education that they otherwise would not be able to achieve. The students whom I met through this program were truly inspiring. They had worked hard, overcome various obstacles, and were admitted to top institutions such as Northwestern, Marquette, and the University of Chicago. HEAR's mission to help these students pursue higher education shows their dedication to providing opportunities for future leaders of our society.

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

my time volunteering. I met an amazing group of young people who received the HEAR Foundation's scholarship.

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

provide them with more funding so that they could do even more to fund excellent projects like this one.

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

meeting the amazing young people who applied for the HEAR scholarship. With the help of HEAR, they will be the leaders of tomorrow.

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

dedicated to the work of providing justice in the areas of health, education and relief.

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

change the landscape of our nation by providing a college education to many hardworking students who might not otherwise be able to afford it.

Ways to make it better...

HEAR had more funding to offer even more scholarships. There were so many deserving applicants!

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

their lack of funding to expand their projects.

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

this organization also does great work in developing nations as well. One example is the orphanage they help to run in Guatemala.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
