Review for Hatch Innovation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first exposure to SI was attending the first forum. It was like walking into the answer to a big prayer, or a bunch of smaller prayers for the support and development of Rooms for Peace. It was quickly recognized that there was a beautiful match between Springboard Innovation and Rooms for Peace, and Amy and crew made it so easy and comfortable and welcoming to join as one of the Changexchange projects. I would be happy to talk at length about this support. Until SI came along, creative social profit grass roots projects had no road map or champion. That has all changed. I hope many many more of you will choose to let Springboard Innovation bring your ideas to the surface, support their development, and launch them into the world. Amy and her team are social change angels!

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

I have seen the results of this organization in the fire of hope kindled in the eyes of many who attend the events and engage in the program. I am one of those with new fire in my eyes.

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

give it to Amy to do.

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

hard to choose. Is it the people? Is it learning about the ideas? Is it the technical support? Is it the birth and growth of hope in all of us?

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

helpful, professional, friendly, supportive, talented, enthusiastic, creative,

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

turn that 10 million into 10 billion for social profit.

Ways to make it better...

I had started at the beginning of the program. However I didn't know about it at the time I was starting.

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

bridging the gap between where they are now and when there are 40-50 organizations listed and hundreds more in the pipeline.

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

I am so blessed to be a part of this group of people bringing this idea to fruition.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
