What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Child Abuse Prevention-Exchange Parent Aide

Exchange Parent Aide is a program of the National Exchange Club Foundation (NECF).  The national office is located in Toledo, Ohio and provides technical assistance, training, affiliation, and accreditation to Exchange Parent Aide programs. Locally, Exchange Parent Aide programs are operated through private, non-profit 501(c)3 organizations that are governed by volunteer boards of directors.  Exchange Parent Aide includes screening, assessment, and home visitation services.

Population(s) Served

The Americanism Program of Service promotes pride in our country, appreciation for the freedoms granted to American citizens, and gratitude to the men and women who serve/have served in the Armed Forces. Americanism celebrates the country’s rich, unique heritage and inspires unity from coast-to-coast.

Population(s) Served

Community service is the lifeline of Exchange, with local-level clubs devoting countless hours and dollars to serving their neighbors every year. Community Service is the Program of Service that most allows clubs to identify opportunities within their communities and offer assistance to fill gaps in services. Since the first group of Exchange Club members convened, Exchange has set the bar high for community service involvement!

Population(s) Served

The NEC Foundation provides two college scholarships annually to America's youth - one to the National Exchange Club's "National Youth of the Year"; one to the "A.C.E. of the Year" (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence); and one "Legacy of the Year"

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.
