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?

Our goal is to make a significant difference in the lives of school-aged children, families and seniors in our community.

We have forged judicious partnerships with school districts and appropriate social service agencies to support our goals.

Our enthusiastic member volunteers work to raise funds, forge partnerships and develop and administer our philanthropic programs.

Agencies and school districts we partner with are asked to provide detailed assessments and feedback.

Strategic partnerships with Santa Clara County, three school districts, and two senior recreation departments have been formed to help identify specific needs and our organization has developed programs to fill those needs.

We continue to survey our community to identify unmet needs for at-risk populations and develop new programs to fill those needs

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).
