Charting impact

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

Some of the goals identified by our 2016-2019 Strategic Plan are as follows:

Programming reflects needs of 85% of our members
50% of new members will complete the Cancer Support Source (distress screening)
85% members feel more able to manage the challenges related to their cancer experience
Expand Red Door Society
No more than 20% of budget from one source
Increase referrals from medical partners
Assess needs of diverse populations

Activities identified for the Strategic Plan include:

Improve baseline by 1/3 of the difference between baseline and 85% via follow-up with non-attenders
Add CQI standard practices to orientation materials
Review CSS – 30% will Retake
Annual pull of data from Gnosis – determine additional engagement from prior year
Add appropriate questions to program, 30 day and annual survey
Develop Plan to fund Effective Staffing
Change messaging to improve member check-in accuracy
Track unique visits
Quantify per-hour value of volunteer time donated. Report out to volunteers, donors, and members

Gilda's Club Madison has been providing cancer support programming to Madison and the surrounding communities since 2008. The services we provide are unique and valuable:

• We support the whole family
• All ages are welcome
• Any cancer diagnosis at any stage is welcome
• Caregivers are supported
• We promote a philosophy of empowerment and “getting by giving"
• We have as amazing facility that provides a welcoming setting
• Programs are offered at no charge
• Cancer Support Community affiliation lends us strength through tools and online support
• We have hundreds of outstanding volunteers who are compassionate and driven to share their skills in support of our mission
• Our board and staff have proven to be dedicated and passionate
• We offer the missing piece in cancer care which helps reduce overall cancer care costs, results in fewer hospitalizations, improves the likelihood that patients will follow their medical regimen, and ultimately results in improved length of survival in many cases.

Progress demonstrated on our 2013-2016 Strategic Plan

As shown in our Annual Report, we currently demonstrate a fairly balanced distribution of income sources, with no individual event, person, or source making up more than 20% of the budget. The two largest sources are contributions (18%, comprised of thousands of individuals), and Red Doors Golf (21%).

• Program sponsorship tools in place in 2013 and implementation plan in place by June 2013.

In 2014, we received $13,500 in direct program sponsorships and $6,000 in print sponsorships. Perhaps the largest impact was seen with event sponsorships, resulting in increased corporate giving across all events. A total of $126,140 was provided by event sponsors in 2014.

• New members per year

New members in 2017: 591 (average of 49 new members each month)
New members in 2016: 373 (average of 31 new members each month)
New members in 2015: 275 (average of 23 new members each month)
