BeTheOne Today

Cultivating strong communities through mentoring.

Community mentor volunteers invest one hour a week with a student so that each unique student is seen, heard, known, and inspired with hope for their future. All interested students may request a community mentor at any time. Students and Mentors are uniquely paired based on common interests and background. Volunteers are screened, trained, matched, and supported by a dedicated school mentor coordinator who facilitates weekly mentoring meetings.

School mentor coordinators are school district employees. Coordinator salaries and all program costs are crowd funded by the community.

Our mentoring programs meet national best mentoring practices. We are a Mentor Washington Dedicated Partner.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

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.
