Mission

Matters On Tomorrow is devoted to changing our world by enabling individuals to change theirs. We are based on a “venture philanthropy" model focused on finding groups with novel structures, ideas and approaches that have the potential to generate high societal returns. We work with groups or individuals in the early stages and prepare them to operate independently when they mature. We are here to provide financial, intellectual, and human capital as well as knowledge and a willingness to experiment with new ideas.   Based in Nebraska and serve many organizations in our local community. While also operating internationally, with permanent partnerships in Rwanda and Haiti.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is an abundance of visionaries with remarkable ideas but no idea how or where to begin. We recognized the struggles in the back office, government filings, book keeping, donor receipts and maintenance of the day-to-day running of a company. That is why we wrapped these services under one roof with experts to support and a bias towards action.

Charting impact

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

Matters On Tomorrow's purpose is to enable action from a big vision by giving the business structural foundations to go out and do. We will work with individuals one-on-one to see a customized solution rooted in proven best practices. We want to see long term success and growth in the leadership of the organizations we partner with and those they serve. Matters On Tomorrow watches for opportunities to connect and help others at a moments notice. We are ready to step in and support when we see potential in unexpected or unrecognized possibility.

Matters On Tomorrow partners with passionate, creative individuals. We understand we can't do any of this by ourselves nor can the organizations we work with. First steps are to create a great foundation to operate out of, providing consistency in record keeping and back-office operations. Then it is refining the vision of that specific organization, who they serve and how they are going to achieve it in a meaningful, purpose filled manner.

Matters On Tomorrow commits not just monetary resources but mentorship in how to build a nonprofit from the ground up. We have volunteers to help with events and experts in many fields that are willing to give their specific skill set. Matters On Tomorrow also commits time - not just for a month or two but for 3-5 years. We are bound with our organizations to grow and sweat along side to encourage them to keep going at each growing pain and celebrate at each triumph. The success of our organizations in helping those they serve is the most important thing to us.

Matters On Tomorrow has seen great success since our 2008 beginning. We have began five 501c3 organizations (other than our own). Built 4 organizations within our subsidiary platform. Accomplished 12 international missions, in 7 countries and established permanent commitments to our program in Haiti and our school program in Rwanda. We have put 54 kids through school and awarded over 149 years of scholarships. Matters On Tomorrow and the partners we work with have raised over $7.9 million during our work together. Finally - we continue small individual outreach on a case-by-case basis and look to meet needs as they arise.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • 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.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • 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.
