What we aim to solve

I have worked as a probono volunteer for more than 35 years in the National Council and it's American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence. Our biggest challenge is the lack of progress at the individual victim's level of need for protection from all forms of family violence - child abuse and neglect, domestic violence (spouse/partner abuse), and elder abuse and neglect. While some of us continue active careers, others are early retired with longstanding professional experience as educators, social workers, medical and psychological practitioners, and protective service officers who volunteer their time to help make a difference in individual lives. Social media is proving to be a cost-effective tool in assisting and improving our all-volunteer efforts. The American Campaign receives no government contracts or grants of any kind. It is financially supported by individuals and corporations through public and private sector workplace campaign contributions.

Context notes

The expansion of social media access through expanded website, Facebook, Twitter, etc. has created a dramatic increase in effective access to assistance for child and family violence victims.

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 they accomplished so far and what's next?

Since we do not accept funding from government at any level, our goal is to continue in current economic circumstances to effectively serve families (children/spouses/elderly) who are victims of family violence and seeking prevention and treatment services.

Our strategy to is cost-effectively utilize all aspects of social media to increase outreach to victims and perpetrators of family violence who are seeking assistance.

Our capabilities are the people who voluntarily (without compensation) provide counseling, consulting, referrals, training, and technical assistance services to both individuals seeking help as a result of family violence (child abuse/spouse-partner abuse aka domestic violence/ elder abuse0 and to entities (schools, churches, shelters, local and national organizations) seeking capacity building assistance in staff and resource development. Our core people have a combined experience of several hundred years working as professionals in the prevention of family violence and serve pro bono.

We can measure progress by the numbers of individuals and families who have learned to prevent family violence by addressing the violence in their own life and in their families, by the number of churches, schools, shelters and organizations of all kinds and sizes that have become more effective, efficient and productive by building and improving capacity to better serve individuals, families and communities.

We have become more productive in serving individuals, families and organizations in spite of the economic downturn of the last 5 to 7 years that reduced our operating income.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


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).
