My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Missoula Urban Demonstration Project, Missoula, MT, USA
MUD is the most humble of charities. I'll bet a dollar will go farther with MUD than just about any group you can come up with. We have led the solar installation workshop on site, been a member, done small presentations and donated a truck. Every town should have a group like this to set a great example to youth and allow students to live a sustainable life 24/7. MUD competes for donors with many other eco-minded organizations and has shown itself to be a survivor. That is a testament to MUD's true adherence to sustainability. From worms to tools to compost and manure, MUD gets it right!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
many ways. We have attended workshops, done presentations at workshops, done solar home tours in conjunctions with MUD, donated a used truck which they kept running many years longer than I thought they could; using it to pick up coffee grounds for their compost and vermiculture and haul manure for their spring fundraiser.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
figure out some way to bring up the standard of living just a little. I think the rest of the community could relate better if MUD was more like a typical home that incorporated all these wonderful things. It would take money to do that.
