Review for Variety Club of Northern California, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've chosen to give my volunteer time to Variety for over 10 years; as a professional in the nonprofit field, I find that Variety has it all for me. A committment to their mission statement, a fiscal responsibility to their agencies and the community, and a fun, innovative approach to fundraising. With a history stretching back to 1927, Variety is one of the few legacy nonprofits I know of that is keeping current with the times and the community, and all the while ensuring that funds keep flowing to kids in the Greater Bay Area.

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

Seeing the organization become an all-volunteer, working board has been very inspiring. Experiencing the true committment everyone has made to keep the doors open and funds flowing to children is very inspiring in these hard economic times. We mean to be here to stay

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

Ensure that the endowment was fully funded; embark upon a capital campaign for improvements to the Preview Room; endow a summer camp run by Variety

Role:  Board Member & I created a monthly community film & authors series that has brought in over $20,000 to date.
