No Barriers USA. Our mission is to unleash the potential of the human spirit.

No Barriers USA

Through transformative experiences, tools and inspiration, we help people embark on a quest to contribute their absolute best to the world. In the process, we foster a community of curious, brave and collaborative explorers who are determined to live the No Barriers Life. Our history began in 2003 when two separate teams of individuals launched organizations designed to change people’s lives by providing transformative educational experiences. One, No Barriers USA, started by working with adults and children with disabilities while the other, Global Explorers, reached middle and high schools students.

Both believed that by taking people out of their comfort zones and exploring the world, you could forever shift the lens through which they saw and navigated their lives. KEEN Footwear.

Rebuilding Together Philadelphia

A House Management Team is a group of volunteers that help with repairs in one home. Each team has a House Captain and a Skilled Captain to lead the project, either recruited by the sponsor team or from RTPs pool of experienced team leaders. When sponsors are not able to recruit enough volunteers, we open volunteer spots to individuals and small groups.

How can nonprofits 'wow' donors with thanks for their support? - Generocity Philly. How to Give is a biweekly column by local philanthropy wizard Lansie Sylvia.

How can nonprofits 'wow' donors with thanks for their support? - Generocity Philly

In it, Lansie answers readers’ questions about millennials, philanthropy and engaging the next generation of givers. To ask her a question, email or tweet @FancyLansie. I’m volunteering for a small nonprofit foundation and I’m worried that our donors aren’t being thanked enough. We don’t have any full-time staff, so sending out prompt acknowledgement letters is about all we can do right now. Do you have any advice for ways we can “wow” our donors? First of all, kudos to you on two accounts: One, it is awesome that you are volunteering your time in such a skilled way, and two, I applaud you for knowing your limits. Oh! When time is a premium, sending yet another thank you note can feel like unnecessary overkill. Keeping your limited capacity in mind, I’ll start with a semi-obvious one: handwritten thank you notes.


National Council of Nonprofits. What is a review?

National Council of Nonprofits

The objective of a financial "review" conducted by an independent auditor is to examine the nonprofit's financial statements and determine whether the financial statements are consistent with generally accepted accounting principles. A review shares the goals of an audit, however, a review is not conducted with the same level of investigation or analysis as an independent audit. During a review, the auditor examines the financial statements but does not conduct an examination of the nonprofit’s internal controls (which is normally included in the scope of an independent audit).

Instead the review provides a limited level of assurance that the financial statements are free of misrepresentations. The auditor’s report after a review will note whether the auditor is aware of any “material modifications” that should be made to the financial statements.
