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 positively impact the oral health in under served communities by establishing permanent clinics and education programs in conjunction with the community being served.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    - Hands on mentoring
    - Lecturing at local universities
    - Community Education Programs
    - Administrative training and support
    - Partnership with local Municipalities
    - Prevention and community outreach on oral health
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The Open Wide Foundation is able to combine the efforts of our dental industry partners, local partners, volunteer dental professionals, local dental professionals and university faculty in a focused effort to better the oral health of the communities being served by working within the infrastructure and build on that in a collaborative and advancing way.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We know that progress is being made. As we see more permanent and self-sustainable clinics spring up consistently seeing patients year-round, the number of patients being served at the dental clinics steadily increase to equipment capacity and the interest from the local dental professionals ever increase.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    A lot has been accomplished, and yet there is so much more to do. Guatemala has a population of 15.47 million and has the worst dental health of any other nation in the Western Hemisphere. Many more communities are hoping for an Open Wide clinic to built and plans are forming for several more to open.

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).
