Charting impact

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

The Community Foundation of North Central Florida will:

-grow it's assets under management, with a priority to grow endowed funds;
-deepen and widen donors' engagement with the Community Foundation and in addressing community needs;
-increase public awareness of the mission and role of a community foundation and strengthen connections between the Foundation and its prospective and current donors;
-continue to strengthen its financial position through prudent fiscal management, high quality investment management and development of a diversified revenue stream;
-lead efforts to build the capacity of the nonprofit sector in North Central Florida to fulfill its mission more effectively; and
-be a leader in building social capital, identifying and addressing community issues, and finding opportunities to build connections to address critical issues key to the community.

The Community Foundation of North Central Florida is governed by a 28-member Board of Directors. This Board of Directors ensures that the Community Foundation is taking all the necessary steps and initatives to achieve our strategic goals. Specifically, the Board of Directors has three separate committees that oversee the implementation of our goals, including the Finance Committee, the Advancement Committee and the Community Needs Committee.

The Community Foundation also utilizes our relationships with our donors, nonprofit organizations and the community to promote and sustain philanthropy in North Central Florida.

The Community Foundation of North Central Florida utilizes their staff and Board of Directors to effectively and efficiently meet their goals. The paid staff is required to keep updated in new technology, resources and their educations. The Community Foundation tracks and monitors their spending and expenses to ensure that the budget is being spent wisely.

In 2017, the Community Foundation has already made 165 grants totaling $2,050,304 with an average grant size of $12,426.08.

Regarding the donor and advisor services in 2017, the Community Foundation has already had 45 donor and/or prospective donor meetings, three community presentation and five advisor meetings.

In 2017, the Community Foundation had 43 agencies renew/join the CNE generating $23,300 in fees as compared to 42 agencies generating $21,200 in fees for 2016.

General grants were awarded to Child Advocacy Center, the Harn Museum of Art partnership with PACE, and the Acorn Clinic.

Regarding community outreach, staff time has been spent reviewing the third quarter reports from the Alachua County School Board, meeting with the Village Counsel and discussing results with representatives of the Mental Wellness Fund. The Community Foundation has been monitoring the progress of the Gainesville Peer Respite Center and are working with them and three other mental health programs to hire one development director to assist the four agencies.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
