Charting impact

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

The goal of 3 Rivers Community Foundation is to create a permanent community endowment to support Benton and Franklin counties now and long into the future. We provide an array of donor services to create resources to address community needs. We work closely with nonprofit organizations to utilize our resources to create a broad and lasting impact and a vibrant community.

Our strategies include:
-Providing professional donor services that compliment those provided by professional advisors, including investment advisors, CPA's, and attorneys
-Providing easy, streamlined tools and policies that meet the needs of our donors and our community
-Using resources, tools, and knowledge to be responsible, impactful grantmakers
-To be transparent and accountable stewards of our donors' legacies
-To listen, be respectful, and be inclusive of all voices and perspectives

3RCF uses software, tools, and resources to provide a high standard of donor services and grant processes. Our software investments ensure we have transparent accounting, reports, and giving tools for donors. We also utilize streamlined grant application software to ensure our nonprofit partners can efficient submit grant requests and follow up reports. Additionally, 3RCF is a member of industry standard associations, and has achieved accreditation through the National Standards for Community Foundations and staff and board members participate in trainings, webinars, and networks to continually learn and grow.

In less than 5 years, 3RCF has increased it's grantmaking capacity by more than threefold, along with a significant increase in grant applicants. We have engaged more donors, positioned 3RCF as a trusted local resource, increased our communication and engagement across the nonprofit community. In the near future our goals are to increase our endowment, which will result in both increased grant funding as well as the ability increase the services and support offered by 3RCF.

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.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • 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 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.
