Review for WILLIAM JAMES FOUNDATION, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an excellent organization, which solicits business plans for triple bottom line businesses, that is, companies that want to provide a useful service or product while also doing good for society and/or the planet--while being well enough run to stay in business.

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

I would make it better known and funded!

Role:  Volunteer & I have helped both administratively and serves as a judge in the competition.
 

Review for Story District, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been to many Speakeasy DC shows and they're consistently excellent: sometimes funny, sometimes moving, but always thought-provoking and worth seeing. And all for the cost of a movie ticket: I think it's one of the best deals in DC.

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

Evenings very well spent, insights gleaned from stories, being able to see a very good live show even when extremely broke.

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

I think they're doing an extremely good job--and in the past year moved to a much better venue.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have attended shows.
