Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To Bring Kindness Into Every Community.
Including Organizations with Social Responsibility Through Kindness Events.
We Allow Giving Circles The ability To Grow And Flourish To Support All Communities and Give Peer-to-Peer Donations a Platform To Make A Difference In their Circles. We Also Give Organizations The Ability To Pay Bills For Their Employees.

We are reaching out to organizations in the for-profit world to share our Kindness Events.
We have created programs to increase the desire to donate from individuals and corporations.
We are teaching society that their donation can have an immediate impact that they can witness.

In this age of Change, we believe people want to know where their donations are going. Accountability and Transparency are Key.
We create relationships in our communities through social media, fundraising, and zoom meetings.
We are seeking grants from foundations that believe in Kindness and Giving Circles.
Partnerships and collaborations with other like-minded organizations will be our crucial strength moving forward.

We have accomplished moving from being a non-profit that focuses on something negative to just focusing on kindness and how kindness can raise your conscious awareness.
We are completely relying on those who need to do something good in the world.
We are teaching people that giving can have an impact you can see through Kindness Events.
We are diligently sharing with organizations how a Corporate Kindness Event can change the trajectory of their work culture to a healthy, caring work environment.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
