?

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?
No
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?
No
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?
No
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?
Yes
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?
No

This section is not a requirement for any of the GuideStar Nonprofit Profile participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)
Adults
Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens

Program Description:

Our work focuses around educating the public, the medical community and the legislature on the health effects of climate change. Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing human health today. As temperature and precipitation patterns change, the delicate balance of climate, weather events and life is disrupted. Although few people are aware of the impact climate change may have on their health, the health effects are serious and widespread. Disease, injury and death can result from climate-induced natural disasters, heat-related illness, pest- and waterborne diseases, air and water pollution and damage to crops and drinking water sources. Children, the poor, the elderly, and those with a weak or impaired immune system are especially vulnerable. We, and countries around the world, must act now to slow and eventually reverse climate change. That means slashing fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; shifting to clean renewable energies, and preparing our communities for the degree of climate change that will come by improving our public health infrastructure, disease surveillance, and emergency response capabilities. In Florida we are working to pass a ban on hydraulic fracturing, raise awareness around the health effects of coal fired power plants and move the state toward clean renewable energy solutions. We have launched a campaign called Healthy Energy=Health People which promotes the transition to clean, safe, renewable energy solutions for Florida and the nation. To achieve this mission we work to educate and activate health professionals, the general public, and policy makers on the connection between energy generation and health. We strive to promote renewable energy solutions which are both cost effective and health protective. We are actively supporting Climate Health Action Teams to support the EPA's Clean Power Plan and promote a strong health protective state plan. We are also supporting Floridian’s for Solar Choice, a broad coalition of businesses, conservatives and environmental organizations working to place a question on the 2016 general election ballot asking voters to decide on expanding solar choice to Florida’s families and businesses. The ballot initiative would remove a barrier that currently blocks clean, renewable solar power.

Program Success Examples:

Clean Energy - We've joined with more than twenty business, faith, labor, consumer, public health and environmental groups to form the Sunshine State Clean Energy Coalition. The coalition is advocating for Florida's largest utility companies to invest in clean, local solar energy. We are calling on Duke Energy to invest in solar power to boost Florida's economy, keep energy dollars in state, and bring clean air to communities. Greening Physician Offices - PSR/Florida board member, Dr. Todd Sack continues his success with the Florida Medical Association and "My Green Doctor" effort. My Green Doctor is a FREE practice management tool for saving money in physician offices and for creating a healthier workplace. Climate Change - 2015 marked the 6th anniversary of our T.Terrell Sessums award for environmental stewardship. The award will be presented to Governor Bob Martinez, for his efforts in protecting the Florida Environment. The keynote speaker is Stanford Professor Mark Jacobson, who also founded the Solutions Project. Dr.. Jacobson will discuss his research into how to transform our energy generation to 100% renewable sources. Hydraulic Fracturing - Twice we have hosted Craig Stevens, a well-known fractivist, who met with close to 50 legislators and aids during his two visits to Tallahassee, educating them on the dangers of fracking and urging them to support anti fracking legislation. Mr. Stephens also held screenings and discussions of the documentary film “Groundswell Rising”. He will be back in March of 2015 to do a statewide tour showing the documentary and discussing the health and economic concerns of hydraulic fracturing.

Program Description:

Support and Foster an active medical and public health student PSR chapter at the University of South Florida. Present at other medical schools around the state to assess interest in starting other student chapters.

Program Long-Term Success:

We have had a very active student chapter at the University of South Florida for the past 6 years. Board member Jeannette Fleischer mentors the students as they participate in the twice monthly Kids Klinic. The Kids Klinic was started by the students a few years ago. They use the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to visit homeless shelters and provide care for pediatric patients. The students also have a partnership that they started last year with the local student AMA chapter and Wellness Council. Together they organized and continue to participate in a local nutrition and environmental education program at the USF Patel Partnership elementary school. The program teaches young children about growing their own food, the importance of a healthy environment and making good choices. They held a Peace Luncheon for 60 second year medical and public health student. Screened two videos ICAN’s “The Humanitarian Imperative to ban nuclear weapons” and the John Oliver video. Discussion around the videos was led by Dr. Ringenberg. The students folded a few hundred Peace Cranes to be hung around campus. Each student who folded a crane received a free PSR t-shirt that the student group designed.

Program Short-Term Success:

Program Success Monitored by:

Program Success Examples:

Board members Dr. Lonnie Draper and Dr. Jefry Biehler are pursing starting Student Chapters at Florida State University and the Florida International University in Miami respectively. Students at both schools have expressed interest; we will work with both groups to get their chapters up and running in 2015.

Program Description:

Toxic Substances Control Act. Passed in 1976 is our nation’s main law aimed at regulating chemicals used in every day products. However it has proven unsuccessful in protecting health.

Program Success Examples:

Marybeth Dunn will continue to work with the PEHT team on updating the Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit. In addition to the updates the group will pursue funding for the development of an App. She and Dr. Whyte will continue to support the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Coalition and will advance their campaigns in Florida. Marybeth will remain as the Florida State Liaison to promote and support chemical reform both locally and on a national level. As a Chapter we are supporting and helping to pass the Chemicals in Consumer Products bill which would require the Florida Department of Health (DOH) to publish an online a list of at least 50 chemicals of high concern in consumer products. We have urged both Senators Nelson and Rubio to support the Children and Firefighters Protection Act (S. 2811) a bill that would ban the ten most notoriously toxic flame retardant chemicals, and allow action on other similar chemicals found to be harmful.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

We strive to bring the medical and public health voice to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment, to promote safe efficient energy solutions and to prevent nuclear war and proliferation of nuclear weapons.
