Mission Statement

To see a generation of youth empowered to create better lives. We hope that through our programs the youth we serve will find hope in their situations and reach out for the help that they need to accomplish their dreams, and to see a generation of youth connecting with the world and people around them on an emotional and intellectual level. There are numerous community centers, youth programs, after school centers, foster care facilities, and churches that provide support to youth who are dealing with the effects of trauma. However, many of these sites acquire inadequate funding to provide consistent programming that teaches practical living skills and emotional understanding and support for trauma. The Peacock Foundation is designed to support existing facilities, struggling to positively affect youth development, in an effort to change the lives of the entire community.

Ms. Lisa Peacock

Profile:

In 1987, 155 people perished in the crash of Northwest Flight 255. Michael Murray Peacock was one of those people. He left a wife and two daughters behind. In 1997, ten years later, Catherine Therise Peacock was involved in a fatal car accident. Two separate events both with the same ending . . . death. Lisa Michelle Peacock, daughter of Michael Murray Peacock and Catherine Therise Peacock, was nineteen years old looking at the rest of her life and grieving. Lisa was lost and isolated with thoughts of uncertainty and confusion. In July of 1997 Lisa went to an overnight zoo program at the Phoenix Zoo. This night would forever change the course of her life. She soon realized that the comfort and security gained from this experience could benefit others in their grieving process. She was hired by the program and has been educating children at zoological associations since. Lisa has always felt connected to those who are grieving and wanted to use her knowledge and experience to benefit others. So started The Peacock Foundation.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided
