Charting impact

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

We aim to fully embrace our growth into the countywide organization.

We will continue to expand and enhance the grassroots work we do throughout Rice County, partnering authentically with community organizations, and addressing community needs. This includes engaging representatives from the communities we serve on our staff, as members of our Board, and in our community partnerships.

Facilitate collaboration, co-design solutions & reinforce accountability across levels & sectors, share knowledge, advocate in policy arenas, build capacity, develop systems, collect data, track &communicate progress, and invest in community driven programming that supports youth from cradle to career.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 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.
