INVESTING IN OUR COMMUNITY
We measure success in the ways lives are changed.
Your donation is invested to create measurable impact and strong ROI.
We listen. We ask questions. We analyze data. This ensures our top issues are aligned with the most pressing needs. Our Community Impact Strategy team guides this work and is comprised of experts in Youth Success, Health and Household Stability.
We invest in numerous programs because change is bigger than a single organization or program. We teach and measure outcomes at the program, collective and community level to ensure lives are being changed in a measurable way.
Volunteers drive impact. Nearly 100 highly-trained volunteers review applications, pose questions, attend presentations and complete evaluations for each program each fall. They utilize a best-in-industry rubric and a consensus model to make funding recommendations.
