What we aim to solve

28,000 Virginians are diagnosed each year with Traumatic Brain Injury. In 2019, an estimated 285,000 people disabled as a result of brain injury and stroke live in Virginia; including estimates of those who have sustained a brain injury or stroke but who are not disabled increases the prevalence to more than 1,000,000. The BIAV employs 8 staff; that equals one of us for 3,500 newly injured people each year and 35,468 who are disabled.

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).
