Charting impact

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

The Hance Family Foundation works every day of the year to improve outcomes for girls and women of all ages. We have created unique and highly effective educational self-esteem curricula. We provide our flagship program, Beautiful Me, free of charge. Our foundation works tirelessly to invite females from all socioeconomic groups, all walks of life, and even all areas of the nation to participate. We provide a free, comprehensive Beautiful Me Teacher Training program. We attract and retain hundreds of volunteers because we practice the actions we teach: we recognize the good in others, we express gratitude, we reinforce others' strengths and we work side by side with all volunteers. As a national nonprofit, we strive to create long-term relationships with all participants, with partner agencies, with volunteers and with supporters.

The Hance Family Foundation employs many strategies to meet our nonprofit's goals. These include, but are not limited to:
1. We plan and host a variety of successful annual fundraisers to fund our Self-Esteem Rising programs.
2. The 13 members of the foundation's Board of Directors, representing a wide range of professions, hold strong commitments to our foundation and its mission. An Advisory Board adds significant expertise and steadfast support.
3. Our Executive Director's outreach to children's and women's groups, supporters and potential benefactors is extensive as she coordinates the foundation's daily operations.
4. Our Executive Board approves an annual budget which has provided for fiscally sound practices.
5. All volunteer hours are tracked and celebrated, as we value the spirit of volunteerism and the benefit it provides on both sides of the relationship.
6. Our Executive Committee meets weekly; strategic planning goals are reviewed, updated and created.

Jackie and Warren Hance formed this remarkable foundation with the intent to honor their children. Warren Hance often shares with audiences that his only goal was to make sure his daughters' lives would be remembered. History has taught us that many foundations may start with the best of intentions, but are not sustainable. The Hance Family Foundation has proven the opposite; supporters, income, volunteers and Beautiful Me participants grow consistently and impressively from year to year. Our foundation is never static in any domain. We have strong, strategic partnerships with long-standing powerhouses across the United States, with a concentration in New York City. We have proven our foundation and our programs' versatility and we have committed our resources to improving outcomes for others.

The Executive Board of the Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance Family Foundation unanimously agrees that our national success and continued growth with matching sustainability is astounding. We have created original programming that has been proven to be highly effective for participants. Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance are known, remembered and appreciated for the lives they lived while here on earth. These beloved sisters motivate legions of volunteers to work day after day, year after year, for others. Jackie and Warren Hance continue to do what so many fear is impossible; they both survive the loss of all of their children by serving others. Jackie and Warren not only fought for survival, they have found success in their foundation. Future endeavors for our foundation include increased fundraising, long-distance Beautiful Me Teacher Training via online courses and aligning with national nonprofits that share our vision and audiences.
