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 they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goals include:
1. to provide the requested funding to clinics on an annual basis.
2. to have a presence and provided funding for mammograms and breast diagnostic services to The National Association for Free & Charitable Clinics at the city-wide CARE Clinics in designated cities.
3. to make certain as many unisured and under insured receive breast diagnostic services and mammograms as funds allow at each clinic

BCSF has an application and evaluation process that clinics must submit to prior to receiving funding. The application has a series of questions that validate the proposed use of the funds. These funds, once approved and distributed are restricted to the purpose for which they are given.

The applications are evaluated by a committee and recommendations are given to the Chair for approval and funding.

Clinics must provide copies of their incorporation as well as projected number of clients who will receive the breast diagnostic services and how the program will be implemented.

Clinics must submit an evaluation of their previous year's accomplishments with BCSF funds before submitting a new request for funding.

BCSF raises funds that will in turn be distributed to the clinics so that they can implement their programs. The more successful the BCSF fundraising, the more mammograms and breast diagnostic programs can be funded.

BCSF is able to evaluate the success of the program through the evaluations provided by the clinics once they have expended their funds from BCSF. The evaluation specially asked for the number of people served and what percentage of their patient population that relates to. To date we can account for more than 11,500 mammograms through the free and charitable clinics funded by BCSF.

BCSF believes we are helping save lives through this program. As long as their are women who are not receiving diagnostic services and as long as people are being diagnosed with breast cancer we have not accomplished our goals.
