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?
    Our organization is dedicated to the idea that no student who is able to receives acceptance to Jefferson College of Health Sciences should not be able to attend because of their inability to pay. As a private not-for-profit college, Jefferson College of Health Sciences is dedicated to keeping its tuition as low as possible while maintaining its high level of quality without direct governmental subsidies.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    The Education Foundation has launched a comprehensive Development Office led by a seasoned development professional with over 14 years of experience in higher education development. The office will undertake annual, capital, major gifts, and planned giving campaigns designed to increase annual support of the College and Foundation.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The College and Foundation have made development a priority in their new strategic plan and have staff and funding in place to fund the development office. The Foundation Board has shown its commitment through funding and through their own personal giving which has reached 100% for the past four years.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our progress indicators will include:

    # of students impacted through scholarships, special funds, and other named funds.

    Increase in the College endowment.

    Increase in assets under management of the Foundation.

    Increase in donors.

    Increase in total funds raised from July 1 - June 30.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have accomplished a 15% increase in funds awarded to students and are making significant progress on each measure above. We continue to look for ways to partner with alumni, local business, foundations, and individuals to impact the education, health, and overall wellness of the greater Roanoke Valley of Virginia.
