Charting impact

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

Our organizations goal is to recruit, screen, train and support additional community volunteers to serve additional children in our communities.

We seek avenues to get the volunteer opportunity out in front of people in our communities. Some examples of how we do this: speaking at social club meetings, attending community events, seeking out advertising, and hosting information sessions.

Our organization has an active board and a committed staff who believe in our mission.

So far our organization has recruited more volunteers this year than last year. It is an ongoing cycle when a case closes the volunteer may not want to take another case due to the nature of the volunteer work.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
