My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Faith in Place, Chicago, IL, USA
My first experience with Faith In Place (FIP) was through my church. Each month, my church distributes a portion of the Sunday "loose change" offerings to a different nonprofit organization. Of course, there are more worthy organizations than there are months, so my church has a vetting process for selecting just twelve organizations. This year, I was a part of the committee who did the selecting, and FIP scored highly on so many indicators that I had to check them out. From that introduction, I attended their 2019 annual "Green Summit" conference and have also volunteered in their offices. When you are "inside," you really get a feel for how an organization works. They continue to impress me as lean, efficient, hard-working and truly committed to their goal of uniting "diverse people of all faiths in sharing the commitment to care for the Earth." In short, this organization has a much needed grip on mobilizing houses of worship in the fight against climate change and for climate justice. Plus, they've been doing it for awhile - since 1999 - and have their act together. On a 5-star scale, I give them a 10!
