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?
    As a community foundation, SAAF’s main goal is to make permanent charitable giving and the management of charitable endowments, efficient and effective for citizens and organization in the Concho Valley.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    SAAF works closely with living donors and estate planning professionals to create a personal relationship to understand each donor’s desire for their charitable intention. Simply put, every donor and every fund is very unique and managed to carry out the donor’s desire.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    SAAF has retained outstanding professional staff and one of the area’s strongest volunteer board of directors, who stay focused on the main goal of SAAF.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Each year, SAAF analyzes gifts and grants compared to peer community foundations and seeks to attain top 25% quartile rankings amongst its peers in gifts per capita and grant making per capita.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    SAAF began in 2002 and in its first ten years, more than $125million in donation have been received and over $50million in grant making have occurred. SAAF has maintained top 25% (or better) in gifts and grants per capita amongst its peers. One area SAAF continues to focus upon for future success is the ability to secure discretionary endowments for grant-making of unknown unmet needs for future generations.
