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?
    To create educational opportunities for graduating high school seniors at Sacred Heart High School in Waterbury, CT.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    To identify students who, in our opinion, will make a difference in the world. This can be because of special interests, a combination of academic and outside accomplishments or simply because of having a positive impact on other students.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We require written applications from all applicants and subsequently select about 50% of these applicants for face to face interviews. We also require all recipients to maintain minimum G.P.A.s of 2.5 and they are also required to forward their transcripts to the Foundation at the end of each semester.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We measure success by the accomplishments of our recipients. Thus far we have had a graduation success rate of over 94%
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We continue to monitor the success of our recipients during their college years and even after they graduate. We offer help with resume preparation, career choices and business contacts.

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).
