Charting impact

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

Established in 1996, Human Service Charities of America (HSCA) assists charities which address humanitarian needs across the globe by raising funds in workplace giving campaigns. Our aim is greater giving for a greater number of charities. Acting as a trusted partner, HSCA brings reputable, highly-vetted organizations to donors, which gives donors the opportunity to address humanity's most desperate needs. By providing this service to charities, HSCA allows these organizations to focus on executing their mission. Over the past fifteen years, HSCA has raised millions of dollars by operating efficiently within the highest standards of ethics and integrity. The impact of 'people helping people' is seen across the United States and around the world by HSCA.

HSCA increases charities' access to workplace giving campaigns. With its application services, HSCA streamlines the process of applying to dozens of workplace giving campaigns. HSCA also builds relationships with the individual campaign administrators, providing member charities increased access to the donors through speaking engagements and charity fairs.

HSCA heightens the visibility of member charities in various workplace campaigns. The HSCA staff attends dozens of events on behalf of the members and provides hundreds of other opportunities for charities to attend events themselves. During the campaign season, HSCA advertises member charities in print and electronic publications and in a self-published charity guide.

Through its vetting process, HSCA introduces to donors only charities with the highest integrity. HSCA evaluates member charities on an annual basis for financial accountability and transparency. HSCA requires its members to uphold standards of accountability and transparency including the following: a current 501c3 status; an annual audit meeting GAAS and GAAP standards; an independent, majority non-compensated Board of Directors; and an efficient administrative and fundraising expense ratio.

HSCA accomplishes its mission through a highly skilled team of professionals with experience in management, finance, marketing, technology, and training. Embedded in the culture of HSCA is integrity and accountability as the cornerstone of its standard of conduct and business practices. HSCA is managed by an independent, non-compensated board of directors which ensures management and staff are held to the highest standards of excellence. In addition, HSCA has a risk management system which ensures the safeguarding of assets, staff, and the board of directors. HSCA has developed infrastructure through its proprietary software for both the application process and pledge and distribution tracking.

Over the past sixteen years, HSCA has accomplished its primary goal of greater giving for a greater number of charities. The organization has assembled a first-rate team to execute its mission efficiently and effectively as reflected in a low administrative and fundraising expense rate of 5.1%. With the development of its proprietary technology, HSCA has increased access to workplace campaigns and streamlined the application process for its member charities. HSCA has maintained the highest level of transparency through its pledge system, providing full information on pledges and distributions. HSCA's services have gone beyond workplace giving to provide support to member charities in other development efforts. HSCA is proud that it has extended the reach of its member charities in addressing the humanitarian needs around the world.

HSCA will continue to refine its operations to stay aligned to the needs of its members. Through further improvements in technology and new avenues of fundraising, HSCA will continue to partner with a greater number of charities that reflect 'people helping people' in support of the world's most vulnerable.
