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?

NAVF's goal to insure that every eligible veteran and spouse receives the benefits that they have earned and deserve in their time of need.

Educating the veteran population, social workers, assisting living communities, and political advocates via the website and direct outreach programs.

Outreach programs are making a huge impact in generating a large number of claims either live or via webinars.

Progress is measured in increased number of veterans & families helped through the claims process and the number of claims that are approved.Inception to date is over 35,000.

As NAVF's reputation has grown as a leader in providing assistance in the VA/Medicaid area, we are experiencing a large increase in the number of referrals.We will need to hire more claim's officers to handle the increased volume of applications. Every veteran and/or spouse deserves the best in support to shepherd them through the VA or Medicaid claims process.

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).
