My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Environmental Volunteers, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA
I am the Board Chair of an non-profit that was invited to attend the Silicon Valley Volunteer Fair organized by Environmental Volunteers on August 17th, 2019. I assisted at my organization table with another volunteer. Based on the event description we were hoping to meet some potential volunteers. Our expectations were far exceeded. We had two corporate representatives talk to us about potential volunteer days for their employees, as well as multiple highly qualified potential volunteers that expressed interest in us. In addition we had 22 people signup for our monthly newsletter which is very high relative to other events I have tabled at. I was personally thrilled with the quality and quantity of folks that stopped at our table.
The location was great and there was a good collection of other organizations attending .the event. When I arrived I was told exactly where to park and was given a map of organization tables that showed me exactly where to set up. Everything was well organized and efficient. Environmental Volunteers had staff and volunteers at their building onsite providing light snacks and drinks. So during a break from tabling, I was also offered a quick tour of their facility which was very interesting.
In summary, if this or a similar event was offered in the future, I would definitely prioritize it on my calendar, based on the great experience this year.
