Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

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

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Complete our artificial reef expansion project, increase the level of scholarships awarded, make significant increases to improvements to Navarre Park, expand the level of participation in the local organic garden project.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Increase Foundation membership and the number of volunteers. Promote the area as an ECO-Tourism destination catering to those who want the environmentally friendly vacation site.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Our volunteers have a very diverse set of backgrounds ranging from technology and marketing to the marine environment and above and underwater experts.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our community overwhelmingly supports our multiple grouping of projects based on participation of our annual events. The Kayak fishing community is fully behind our Eco-tourism goal and want to make this the regional Kayak recreational and fishing capital.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    The increased biodiversity of fish and marine invertebrates and protection of Navarre Beach and surrounding coastal habitats through the creation and maintenance of a near shore marine sanctuary has far exceeded projected expectations. Some species of aquatic life are now common on our near-shore reefs that previously were not common. Oyster growth on our sound-side reef sites are now producing healthy populations where they were previously wiped out. Our scholarship and fund-raising events are now possible every year and have expanded to include additional opportunities. The Organic Garden is expanding it's participation. Recent construction of a dune boardwalk protects critical habitat and vegetation. Two new reefing areas have been approved and are permitted and funded to the point of RFP for construction.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
