The Foundation seeks to be the leading philanthropic institution in Hancock County; provide collaborative community leadership that addresses complex, longstanding community problems; support the self-sufficiency of community non-profits; and maintain a mix of assets and funds that will allow it to endure into the future.

The Foundation employs four strategies to achieve its mission, vision, and long term goals. 1. Support of, and participation in, community problem-solving through collective impact and community stakeholder engagement. 2. Providing on-going access to top local and regional experts in nonprofit management to local community nonprofits. This includes workshops, coaching for board and staff, and support of strategic planning. 3. Donor engagement and education regarding community needs and opportunities, 4. Presenting a comprehensive program of philanthropic tools and strategies to current and prospective donors who wish to give through the Foundation.

The Foundation has full-time staff dedicated to collective impact and stakeholder engagement. Through its grant making capacity, more than $49 million has been awarded to local organizations to support collaborative approaches to issues such as addiction, workforce development, early childhood education, and more. Beyond funding, the Foundation owns and operate The Family Center, a multi-tenant nonprofit facility. The Foundation commits more than $100,000 per year in support of agency capacity building. The Foundation's development staff has more than 50 years experience in planned giving and stewardship. The staff has strong relationships with local attorneys, accountants, and financial planners from all disciplines. The Foundation sponsors local study groups for individuals wishing to be come Chartered Advisors in Philanthropy. One staff member has received the CAP designation and a second staff member is in working toward the designation with completion expected in November, 2018

The Foundation carefully monitors its key performance indicators, reviewing them as a staff bi-weekly and meeting with a coach quarterly. To measure community and philanthropic leadership, the Foundation employs CFLeads' Community Leadership Framework Status assessment tool and measures its work bi-annually. Locally, stakeholders are surveyed annually to gauge impact. Responsible grantmaking is measured via survey with a logic model outcome achievement and programming sustained, as well as organizational behavior change as a result of capacity building participation. To maintain a mix of assets most valuable to the community, the Foundation tracks growth of assets and estate plan promises, as well as meaningful conversations with philanthropic-minded residents who may be interested in supporting the betterment of Hancock County now or in the future.

The Collective Impact process was implemented in Hancock County in 2014 to bring all invested parties together to address the challenges facing our community. The Center for Civic Engagement was created with the help of a TCF grant to serve as a hub to support the coalitions working through the Collective Impact process. The Family Center is owned by the Foundation and houses more than a dozen nonprofit agencies. The Foundation appoints members of a supporting organization board to oversee its operations. The Family Center sees more than 75,000 visitors per year and addresses some of the most basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter. In the future, the Foundation hopes to build our Community's Endowment to add flexibility to our assets to enable the Foundation to continue to support these programs and add new to serve more individuals in Hancock County.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section 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).
