Mission Statement

At Givology, our vision is to make quality education accessible for all children. We believe that education is the single most important and sustainable resource for individual empowerment, community advancement, and poverty alleviation. Through our network of grassroots partnerships, we strive to connect our network of donors with innovative, high-impact projects and scholarships that can transform local communities one at a time. As a 100% volunteer-run organization, Givology is an online giving marketplace that aggregates small dollar donations and small volunteer hours into a powerful force for change. Through our network of grassroots partnerships, we link our donors with high-impact education such as teacher training, library construction, textbook purchases, student sponsorship, among other activities. In particular, we emphasize transparency and impact monitoring - Givology pioneers a new model of "crowd-sourcing" philanthropy to make the largest impact at the lowest cost.

?

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

Budget:
$1,772
Category:

Population Served:

None
None

Program Description:

Every year SKIP provides school supplies and materials which enable 320 children of primary and secondary age to go to school. For 2012, we were hoping to receive a grant to cover the costs, unfortunately this has not happened and we are increasingly concerned about how we will be able to make these payments as we do not have sufficient resources in the bank. Our programme offers the provision of school materials and supplies to families as a conditional incentive in return for the participation of the children and their parents in workshops and educational activities at the SKIP Centre. The vast majority of our families are living in extreme poverty which means that they survive on an income of less than $1.20 per family member per day. As they struggle just to find enough money for food every day, there is not extra money to pay for school books and materials. We are hoping to raise enough to buy the children exercise books. The cost per child for 5 books will be 15 Peruvian soles/ $5.54. Therefore the total cost we need for the 320 children is $1772.00

Program Long-Term Success:

The goal of the program is to have every single child in the impoverished districts of El Porvenir and Alto Trujillo, located on the North Coast of Peru, be able to go to primary and secondary school.

Program Short-Term Success:

SKIP wants to provide school supplies and materials to enable 320 children who have been participating in previous years, to go toprimary and secondary school.
