Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The amount of free time children in the United States have access to has dropped dramatically over the last 50 years, much related to overstructured days planned by parents and education system's focusing heavily on improving test scores and reducing recess time. During this same time period, children have spent less time outdoors for issues related to technology/screen use and parent's worry of safety.

Charting impact

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

Mariposa Kids is working to increase unstructured playtime in children's lives through programming centered around free play. In this work, we focus on increasing outdoor time for children by setting goals that include children spending at least 2 hours a day outside in our After-School Program (50% of their time in our program) and 30% of their day with us in summer camp (approximately 3 hours).

In addition to increasing outdoor time for children, we have set goals for children making cross-age friendships with kids through programming efforts to provide time for children across ages to play with one another. We also work to get families building relationships through regular family events, so that families can find support through one another which can help improve home life for children.

Children's health will improve with more outdoor time in safe spaces and their social emotional development will improve through free play based time in our spaces.

Mariposa Kids is working to increase our financial assistance offerings to increase our access to families with low incomes and from traditionally marginalized communities. Providing quality out-of-school time care to children helps families maintain participation in the workforce while we focus on providing safe spaces for children to play.

Through annual surveys, Mariposa Kids is evaluating our impact in areas of friendship, outdoor time, and family social connections to see how our programming that includes family activities, ample options for outdoor play, and purposeful attention to getting children from different age groups playing together.

Our annual curriculum for our After-School Program focuses on activities that help with social emotional development and support our Health & Nutrition Program ensuring that we attend to the healthy mind and body for each child. Most importantly, we bring fun and and joy into these spaces and activities so that children can learn better when in school.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

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.
