Mr. Thomas G. Bognanno

Term:

Since Dec 2006

Profile:

Thomas G. Bognanno has been the President and CEO of Community Health Charities of America since January of 2006. Prior to that Mr. Bognanno had a distinguished 20-year career with the American Diabetes Association, working his way through different roles, starting as Executive Director for the former ADA New Mexico and Missouri affiliates and Executive Vice President for the Texas affiliate. He was promoted to Special Assistant to the CEO in 1998 before moving into the role of Chief Field Officer in 2003. He also was one of the chief architects of the Everyday Choices for a Healthier Life partnership between the ADA, the American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society.

Leadership Statement:

More than 133 million Americans suffer from a chronic disease or life threatening illness. Many of those affected rely on the support and services of America’s most trusted health charities, which make up the membership of Community Health Charities. Bringing America’s best health charities together in the workplace to provide employees an opportunity to give to the causes most important to them is an idea that is now over half of a century old. For more than 57 years, Community Health Charities, through the leadership of its volunteers, member charities, and staff, has been instrumental in supporting the private and public sectors in building a culture of giving that is inherent to the American way of life. Community Health Charities continues to be the leader in raising funds in the workplace for health-related charities in both the private and public sector. In the fiscal year ending June 30,2013, the collective efforts of Community Health Charities and its network of affiliates translated to almost $68.5 million pledged nationwide to our member charities. These dollars help fund important community education programs and services, research discoveries, and efforts to protect the rights of those confronting a health issue who need a voice. Community Health Charities is one of the most cost- effective, non-profit organizations, keeping its national overhead costs at just 8 percent. Though workplace giving is a longtime tradition, it is rapidly evolving and changing to meet the needs of the American workforce. For Community Health Charities, this has meant redefining our value in the workplace through its’ Health Matters at Work® program. On behalf of Community Health Charities, we thank all of you who have helped support our vision to improve the lives of people affected by a disability or chronic disease.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

July 2014)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Yes

$82,000
Category:

Program Description:

The Health Matters at Work program is designed to promote employee health and wellness, encouraging a business culture where personal health and well-being are highly valued. A culture where not only employee health but employee volunteerism and employee charitable giving become part of a corporations mission and business strategy. Each Health Matters at Work program is customized within the three focus areas to fit the needs, goals, and culture of each company. To learn more about the program, visit www.healthmattersatwork.org(http://www.healthmattersatwork.org) .

Program Long-Term Success:

For Employees ? Increased knowledge about the relationship between lifestyle and health ? Increased opportunity for employees to take control of their health and medical treatment by improving their health literacy ? Increased morale due to management's interest in their health and well-being as individuals not just employees ? Impact work absences through workplace health prevention workshops ? Impact medical costs ? Impact pain and suffering ? Provide community volunteer opportunities to employees ? Provide ongoing connection to charities serving employees and the community ? Provide outlet for employees to support local charities of their choice in a pressure free and easy way For Employers ? Increased worker morale ? Increased worker productivity ? Informed health care, cost-conscious, workforce-positive public relations ? A recruitment tool for new employees ? Reduced work absences ? Reduced health care and disability costs ? Increased community visibility ? Increased employee skills through community volunteer projects For the Community ? Contributes to establishing good health as a norm ? Complements and reinforces national and local public health initiatives ? Improves quality of life of citizenry ? Ensures continuity of programs and services in the community For the Charities ? A steady, reliable, year-round income source for charities: Charities can be assured of year-round funding, and the recipients of these needed services are assured of year-round assistance. ? Workplace giving is more cost-effective and efficient for charities: Many of the smaller local health charities represented by CHC do not have a formal fundraising department nor can they afford a dedicated person to fundraise on their behalf. That is why CHC was formed, to fundraise on behalf of these charities, enabling them to continue with their outreach, service programs, support groups, newsletters, awareness, and prevention education within the community.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
