Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Right now we are working to gain support in outside communities that we serve. We currently support 14 non-profit organizations that serve 16 counties in Western Nebraska. Many of the communities do not know that part that Mid-Plains United Way takes to aid individuals in their communities, so we are working on expanding our visible reach with branding our organization.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to financially help and promote our partner organizations so they can effectively help needy individuals in our communities. We choose our partners based on their work in three areas: income, education and health. Investment in these sectors create long-term economic development, which give us the opportunity to increase the average household income, graduation/employment rates and improve the average health state of individuals in our community over a long period of time.

Our board carefully reviews applicants' goals, accomplishments and financial accountability after researching and reviewing the greatest needs in our communities to decide which programs will most effectively satisfy our communities' needs. We use community events and media outlets to educate and promote our cause by focusing on the great work that our partner agencies are accomplishing. We meet with community leaders and business men and women on a regular basis so we can effectively unite resources to provide the best services to our communities.

As mentioned, we have a high focus on educating the community about our efforts and our partner agencies' accomplishments/goals. We utilize our Board of Trustees which is filled with diverse, well-educated individuals who have knowledge and connections to best advise and lead our organization. We strive for transparency and require our partner agencies to report back to our office quarterly with program updates and financial documents. We gather information about how many people, families, individuals used their United Way funded programs.

We are reaching individuals who have never donated before, so great opportunity for growth is coming. Our next goal is to reach out to our other counties to grow the donor base and awareness of the United Way and increase volunteer participation.

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.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • 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.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.

  • 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.
