We have as our goal to provide needed funds and services to those in our community who are in need, while providing meaningful service work for our 300 volunteers.  We strive to give back, and in doing so, reinforce the commitment of our 300 members to work together, build friendships and partnerships, all for good causes.

Our strategies are: Organize to efficiently and effectively marshal our volunteer resources to support causes in Collier County.Conduct effective fundraising programs to raise funds to support our philanthropic goals.Seek opportunities to make a meaningful difference in the community by researching community needs and developing joint programs to address the needs of the community. 

The organization has had a long history of working with the City of Naples and other organizations to make significant impact on the community.  We constantly educate our members about best practices in volunteer management, finance, grant-making and philanthropic strategies.  We have a defined board of directors who have specific responsibilities consistent with best practices.

We measure our effectiveness in multiple ways: Volunteer Satisfaction is measured by membership retention and volunteer service hours.Impact on the community is measured by funds raised and long term success of our grant recipients and scholarship recipients. 

Each year the organization has increased the amount of funds raised and the number of scholarships and grants given.Our membership is at its maximum and has been for the past two years--we have a waiting list.We have conducted surveys regarding member satisfaction/fulfillment and will continue to do so.
