Review for Ducks Unlimited Inc, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with Ducks Unlimited for many years and have held numerous positions, both as a "worker bee" and in a leadership role. I started volunteering when I saw that the funds that were used for conservation programs have always made up at least 85% of funds raisied.

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

Seeing the difference made in marshes and wetlands on the Gulf Coast and the efforts to conserve and restore wetlands.

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

Make sure that the fund raising staff was given training on making presentations.

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?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Simplify staff goals when it comes to fundraising.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have met people from all over North America and many have become good friends. It is an organization that attempts to engender a "family atmosphere" among volunteers.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Great. Seeing and being with like minded volunteers makes being part of the volunteer organization of Ducks Unlimited truly specisl.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
