Zoom Group is a member of the Ability One program.

We make the impact of our funding a top priority by minimizing our administrative and fundraising expenses, so that a large majority of our operating capital goes directly toward programs and enrichment activities for our clients.

When researching a non-profit, it is important to understand whether or not the organization truly exists to honor its mission (or if it exists more for its own survival).

At Zoom Group, we know that we are fulfilling an urgent need, and that being great at our work is what changes lives. Our diligence and frugality tells us to run things like a small business. We keep overhead low, leaving more available for the people that matter the most to us.
