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 and haven't they accomplished so far?

Provide financial support to those in the world-wide Diplomatic Security "family" during times of hardship or crisis.

Two-fold: We're working hard to get the word out about what we do and how we can help, and raising money to help those in need.

We fund-raise throughout the year including our annual charity golf outing and we participate in the CFC. We spread the word using social media, DS internal newsletter and DSSAA newsletter.

It's easy to see if we raise more money than the year before (which have done every year for the past six years), and it's easy to see if we help more people than the year before.

Every year, the need for support from DSF is different, but overall we've been able to help more and more individuals every year.
