Review for Longview Act, Longview, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been an Artsview Board member for three years. For many years prior to that I was aware of Artsview and the great work it was doing in our area. A close friend of ours, Doris Collier had been one of the founding Board members and asked my son and I to become Board members. It was at that point I began to see how much work it took to make Artsview the success it has become. The tremendous amount of work, time and energy the volunteers, as well as, parents and participants put into Artsview is why it has had such a positive impact on the community as a whole, especially the young participants. While non-profit entites, as a whole, our struggling in ths economy, Artviews, through the deligence of its Board, continues to be extremely prudent with the resources and funds it is entrusted with. Those resources and funds are always used 100% to benefit the participants of Artsview. No person is turned away from Artsview because of a lack funds, when tuitions are involved. This prudent care of the business side of Artsview, as well as the positive impact on the community as a whole has afforded Artsview one of best reputations in the community for non-profits. Artsview has reguarly received funding from City of Longview Grants, which are based on merits as well as, our staff/volunteers preparation of the grant requests, not an easy task. While the length and passion of my review may seem intense to extreme, I am involved to such a minor extent compared to many of our volunteers, many of our more involved workers and volunteers obviously fell much the same as I do. I am certain many people in the community feel the same way about Artsview

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

Board meetings, as well as, attending performances.

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

try to fugure out more funding.
