Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide a minimum of $7600 in students scholarships each fiscal year.

The Foundation solicits donations from members of our partner organization, California Mathematics Council, Community Colleges (CMC^3) and hosts fundraisers at CMC^3 conferences. This year, we are also exploring social media fundraising platforms such as through Facebook.

We have access to member lists that allow us to contact members directly. We also have a presence at each of the CMC^3 conferences where board members actively engage conference attendees on behalf of the Foundation. We manage a website with a donation link through PayPal and a Facebook page that is followed by more than just the CMC^3 membership. We have met our scholarship goals each year for the past several years and feel that we are now in a position to expand our scholarship program.

We have increased our scholarships in the past 2 years to include small scholarships for all poster session participants in addition to the poster contest awards. We have also been able to increase the general scholarship fund to $6000. For a small organization, this is a major accomplishment. Next, we would like to add another student speaker scholarship. After that, we will likely look to increase the funds for our general scholarship program and expand our student poster contest.

Data
  • 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 use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • 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.
