Charting Impact

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

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?

Our goal is to increase donations each year to support and expand the animal care services at the Iowa City Animal Center. We strive to decrease the euthanasia rate at the shelter, increase community awareness and increase the adoption rate.

We have a Giving Circles Program to give the donor specialized perks for giving at certain levels. We have updated our website and social media platforms to make donations the focus of the organization. We have increased our fundraising events to include more community members' interests.

We see increased community involvement and donations through our social media platforms and monthly eNewsletter.

We use a donor database to track the income. We also use Quickbooks to review our profits and losses for each program.

We paid off a $1 million pledge towards the construction of the new Iowa City Animal Center one year early. We approved the increased ask from $50,000 to $65,000 towards ICAC programs for FY18; we did successfully fund the $65,000 in FY18. We approved an increase from $65,000 to $70,000 towards the Iowa City Animal Center to allow for professional development funding for FY19.

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).
