Review for CURE International, Inc., Spring Lake, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

*NOTE* While techincally I also volunteer with CURE, I'm on full-time staff at the organization. In the time I've come to know about CURE as an organization, and become part of the organization - I've been incredibly impressed with almost every aspect of CURE. One of the most impressive elements of this organization is the level at which they operate in terms of efficiency, professionalism, and integrity. Then add to that how personal the organization is in terms of making all of it's members feel like family - and I'm really hard pressed to say I know of another organization quite like CURE. CURE has consistently been ranked with Charity Navigator's highest ranking (4 Stars) for 8 years running, something which only a very small fraction of all charities can say. CURE has earned this track record through integrity in how they allocate donor funds, and how the organization is run from a business standpoint. But again, for me what's even more impressive is the reputation CURE has built with outside parties both in the developing world where we operate, and also in the US and UK where we do our primary fundraising. One of the biggest testimonies is how CURE has been literally asked to take over the hospitals we now operate in some of the countries where we are present by government officials. That itself speaks volumes. As someone both intimately acquainted with the organization (I'm a member of the full-time communications team) and as a supporter, I can confidently say that CURE International is a first class organization that operates with integrity and ambition to accomplish incredible things in this world.

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

Being part of a cause that is far greater than simply my life alone.

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

Improve some areas of donor communication, although since I'm on that team - I can honestly say we're working hard at it.
