Charting Impact

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

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?

Our mission is to continue to conserve the forests, farms, and waters of the Upper Delaware River region; to act as a community resource and to continue to offer quality educational programming; and help to protect our sustainable local economies and quality of life of the region.

The Conservancy achieves its mission by working with our partners in the community, including other businesses and organizations; private landowners and municipalities; and by offering educational programming year-round to engage people of all ages in our conservation mission and encourage stewardship of the land.

The Conservancy has a staff of five full- and part-time employees; an experienced Board of Directors; and a dedicated group of more than 50 volunteers that assist all year with our programming.

The Conservancy measures progress by acres of land conserved; attendance at our programs; and the number of members who invest each year in our conservation mission and ensure our success.

Although the Conservancy has protected more than 14,000 acres in our region, there is always more to do, and we continue to engage with landowners and communities to protect the lands and waters that sustain us, and work with our partners to develop new educational programming to continue to engage the community.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

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).
