    "I live in Chicago and have recently quit my desk job to "pursue a greater purpose" I didn't know where to start until a friend of mine suggested I take a look at this site and see what I can find. To my delight, there were truly a lot of non profit organizations in their list and I was able to find something that suits me well. I'm pretty happy so far and do not regret quitting my job. I pray everything works out! "

    "As someone who's always been an environmental advocate in my younger years, i've always dreamed of helping out more but wasnt able to do so back then. So when I started to have more time in my hands, I looked for a list of nonprofit jobs in Illinois and was able to find one here. Now I get to do something I believe in and help out even in little ways.. :D"

    "I've recently taken an interest in the nonprofit world, and am thinking about trying out. I've been wondering a lot about what nonprofits can and can't do, and since this site also serves as a place where people could tell stories, I was hoping I'd stumble across an article like that, I've got nothing so far but im still looking. even though i have not found yet what im looking for, I did however saw a lot of other posts that helped me learn a lot about the industry and that i think is something that makes this site nicer than the others."

    "Before I decided to form my own nonprofit org, I was first a volunteer and found different jobs through this website, it was already good then, but now as someone managing an organization, I have also tried this to advertise openings and i can say it works well since out team gets a lot of emails weekly. A very helpful site indeed!"

    "I've been looking for opportunities in the nonprofit sector when I came across this site and saw that not only do they have an opening list for jobs but they also have one for grants and funding, which got me really excited cause i've been working on something very recently. I'm still doing my research and havent decided yet if I should apply for a job or try the grant, but with what Im seeing i'd definitely say that this is one of the best site to find nonprofit work."
