Notes from the nonprofit

Currently, our Nonprofit is trying to get off the ground financially and with a physical location other than what is listed officially. We have $35 in our account and two leads for a physical location which is keeping us from being fully operational. This year we have become a Nonprofit Partner with Carry The Load and hopefully this will open greater doors for us. Bear with us and we will always be transparent and that is what we prefer.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 12/12/2022

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • 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 use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • 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 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.
