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 unite and promote the Lake Highlands area through service to the community by civic, educational, and charitable programs.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    LHWL is comprised of 100% volunteer members who are active in all aspects of our community life. Each active member volunteers at least 4 times per year at one or more of our many service projects. These opportunities range from mentoring/tutoring students, supporting teachers or staff at neighborhood schools, and helping in local charitable organizations. The entire membership is involved in our only fundraiser, our "Holiday in the Highlands" Home Tour, bake sale, and Luncheon. This event is a wonderful neighborhood event and serves as the kickoff to the Christmas season.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We have been successfully meeting and exceeding our goals for 46 consecutive years through the dedication of our 100 active members and over 200 sustaining members.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    The ability to continue to fund our annual scholarship goal of approximately $90,000 and raise additional funds to disburse to schools and charitable organizations is a financial measure of our success.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    LHWL has distributed over $2.5 million in college scholarships and community disbursements. There is a continued need for college scholarship funding for deserving high school students in our community. In addition, our schools and local charitable organizations greatly benefit from the financial and volunteer support LHWL provides.
