What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Apple A Day Program

In 2017, AMF made the choice to move the unmovable, to impact our community in such a way that no one deemed possible, thus inspiring others to take action. The intent of the "Apple A Day" program is to award as many iPad/tablets to individuals with a disability, to help them find their voice and be increasingly included within their communities. Our efforts to create a voice, where one did not exist prior to, cannot take effect unless we have the support of people such as yourself.

Charting impact

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

1) Add an educational training component to our Apple A Day Program.
2) Writing grant proposals at both the Federal & State levels that meet our vision and mission.
3) We will continue to survey our clients and supporters yearly to find out the current needs of our community.
4) Looking into re-branding in 2020 and combining the for-profit company with our non-profit company
(a) This will help with less confusion for our clients
(b) Free up time and bring cohesion for all of our supports and services
(c) Bring all of our supports and services under one company
(d) Allow us to focus on growth and strengthening our business
(e) Gives us a stronger identity and brings the company into the future of supports and services in our field

We partnered with Lindenwood University this past semester with the non-profit degree program. The students, led by Dr. Julie Turner, put together a strategic plan for us with a great SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) to work from in the upcoming year. The board is reviewing it and we are putting steps in place to continue our efforts to strengthen the Adam Morgan Foundation. The main priority is going to be to maintain our vision and Mission and not drift from that while expanding our supports and services.

- We have a very dedicated and strong board of directors that supports our efforts.
- We are actively searching for additional board members with the specific skills of fundraising and grant writing to help us reach the next level.
- The founder/Exec. Director has recently finished her Doctoral Degree and can spend more time growing the non-profit. With her credentials, this provides another layer of credibility for the foundation and its mission and vision.
- We have been in discussions with 3 other organizations in our community with regards to partnering on future projects and grants.

- I have meetings set up with the 3 community organizations that we want to collaborate with to discuss next steps.
- I have a meeting with a potential new board member that has both fundraising and grant writing experience - he used to be an Exec. Director of another non-profit.
- In the process of submitting a RFP for a federal grant
- Writing up 2 proposals for pilot projects her to our local DDRB for 2 different grants.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
