What we aim to solve New!

One of our main challenges is funding to hire long-term professional staff and funding projects that can be outsourced. We understand that most donors want to give to actual projects on the ground but most do not understand that it takes finances to pay skilled individuals to run them. By having the funding to hire several key staff and outsource certain projects, we can be more effective overall in bringing relief to people around the world who are suffering in the midst of crisis and disaster.

Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Bring relief quickly and efficiently around the world.

CRI needs to expanding our training program to train an additional 10,000 volunteers in addition to the 10,000 we already have. CRI does not mobilize untrained volunteers to disaster. Expanding our marketing to target the right people at the right time will help more people to engage, give and volunteer with Crisis Response International. Most of our volunteers often become donors as well. So expanding training programs also expand our donor base. This is a win-win and in the end, those affected by crisis and disaster will have their needs met more effectively and sooner. Again, marketing is key to this.

We have a solid foundation of principles and practice that just need to be scaled. We have a world class team, just not enough of them. Key designated funding will allow us to meet our goals and expand our reach. In the end, it is about helping more people.

We will know that we are being effective by how many people we are serving and how long we are able to serve them post-disaster.

We recently launched an online training program that takes stress off of our training staff and puts training opportunities in front of many more people around the world. Simply put, more volunteers; more impact!

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).
