What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Soldiers' Angels has set a new baseline for the organizational goals in 2014 as a result of the financial decline the organization experienced in 2012 and 2013. Our goals for 2014 are to continue to provide support to our deployed service members, families of fallen and female caregivers through our 12 teams. Our goal is to continue to grow these teams to provide the best quality support possible to these families. We plan to grow our support through the VA Medical Centers by supporting 10 new centers in 2014. Soldiers' Angels also has a goal of staying on track with the 2014 budget and using that to develop a new baseline for future budgets and for future revenue goals and monitoring funding increases.

Soldiers' Angels must communicate better with the donors so the donors can see the great work the organization is doing with their donor dollars. Soldiers' Angels needs to follow the fundraising plan put in place to ensure donor development is a top priority and the funding streams become more diversified. Soldiers' Angels has created marketing materials and is actively recruiting volunteers to help provide support to the VA Medical Centers. They are all receiving more extensive training and guidance to ensure they are fully trained and able to perform the duties of the organization efficiently and effectively. Soldiers' Angels has also created position descriptions for volunteers and written operating procedures for each team so each team knows what to expect, what to report and knows how to do the tasks they are asked to complete. Soldiers' Angels is actively recruiting new board members and is in the process of seeing new life added to the board to ensure it's diversified and meeting the governance needs of the organization.

Soldiers' Angels has an amazing team of volunteers all over the country doing the work of the organization. SA has an amazing database that allows volunteers to access their assigned duties via the system and ensure they are working with minimal administrative oversight. They also log their volunteer hours and report on the work they have done for organizational reporting needs. The organization now has a strong staff and is working quickly to put the necessary structure in place for the organization to grow. The board is growing and functioning better and has the proper structure in place to provide the organization the support it needs.

Key indicators include an increase in revenue, increase in donor responsiveness, retention rates of volunteers, volunteer satisfaction and the number of veterans and military families served. indicators also include the overhead ratio.

Soldiers' Angels is on track to achieve the goals. Just finishing first quarter, which is always hard on nonprofit organizations, but on track based on expectations. We are already growing our volunteer base and expanding our VA support.
