Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

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?

The goals of the organization are:
1. To create sustainable funding to ensure the organization will be able to impact families for many years to come.
2. To acquire or build a multi-family building to continue housing families
3. To continue to analyze program results and to add or enhance programs to better meet the needs of the families served.

The Board of Directors is reviewing the results of a campaign feasibility study to raise capital for Development Staff and to purchase a multi-family residence in a targeted area near Loma Linda University Children's Hospital.

A campaign plan is being created with defined committee structure and responsibilities to make the campaign successful. Internal operations and job descriptions are being re-evaluated to build a fundraising team and strategy to create improved donor relations, a major donor program and planned giving strategies.

At this time, the founders are still very much involved with the day-to-day operations of the organization. A succession plan is being discussed to ensure a smooth transition of leadership from the founders when the time is appropriate or required due to health or personal reasons.

Based on the results of the feasibility study conducted by an independent fundraising consultant company, support for the campaign were well above the average. The sampling group felt the organization needed to grow operationally and needed the building to further its mission of providing assistance to families. In the small sampling of 37 donors, the donors indicated gifts of more than 30% of the campaign goal. Additionally, the group expressed high interest in committing time (volunteering) to help the campaign be successful.

The Board is creating a plan to engage more individuals and corporations to get involved and support Steven's Hope financially through several methods. A Strategic Planning committee is also being assembled to provide more detailed guidance to the Board as it navigates the action plan for the next 3-5 years.

The success of the campaign will be the biggest determining factor in making progress to the stated goals. While reaching or exceeding the financial goal is optimal, strategies and action plans are being established based on various levels of the financial success of the capital campaign.

Building the internal operations through the establishing of a Development Team with a Development Director is critical. Based on the success of Development activities, a new Executive Director may be hired to replace Mr. Cappelli and transition the daily operations away from the founders.

Should the capital campaign raise enough to facilitate acquiring property, additional programs will be able to be started to benefit families temporarily residing with SHFC.

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).
