Review for League of Women Voters of California Education Fund, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After being dogged for months by a friend I finally joined the League over 15 years ago. It is a perfect fit. My father was an immigrant who said to me - get the best education you can and VOTE!!! LWV's Eduction Fund combines both. It educates voters in a non partisan way so they can be informed before they cast their ballot. It is a wonderful, ego-free organization that supports educating the public about important issues in our Democracy. Join us! Try it, you'll like it!!!

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

Donate as much money as possible to support their efforts to educate us on important issues.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Review for Abode Services, Fremont, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have supported Abode for a number of years. When we choose a non profit to align with we look for several positive factors: efficient use of donated funds or services, great staff members who exemplify the mission of the organization and visionary leadership from both the top staff members and the board. Abode excels in all three categories. They have ranked at the top with Charity Navigator for 5 straight years, their staff members all believe in the mission with vigor and often support it with their own donations and finally the top staff and board could not be more supportive and in sinc with one another and the entire community they serve. Abode is a winner in every senses of the word.

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

I have visited every facility they own and/or manage. Support services are an integral part of their mission. They don't just house people in need, they provide social services so they can help them selves out of homelessness.

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

Give them more money.

Role:  Volunteer & As a volunteer I help with planning their major yearly fund raiser.
