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?
    1 | Continue Legacy Retreats® as the ultimate way to inspire hope and to gain insights from the families to whom we
    minister directly.
    2 | Create content in order to minister with greater depth and breadth.
    3 | Use content and expertise to position Inheritance of Hope (IoH) as the leader in legacy development for young
    families facing the loss of a parent.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    1 | Continue Legacy Retreats® as the ultimate way to inspire hope and to gain insights from the families to whom we
    minister directly.

    IoH continues to pursue new partnerships (e.g., hotels, airlines, theme parks) in its existing Legacy Retreat® locations
    (Orlando, NYC) as well as seeking new retreat locations to better serve families across the United States.

    2 | Create content in order to minister with greater depth and breadth.

    We are developing webinars, new books, printed resources for families, translations of existing materials, new videos, and bible studies to broaden our content.

    3 | Use content and expertise to position Inheritance of Hope as the leader in legacy development for young families
    facing the loss of a parent.

    A key goal of Inheritance of Hope’s strategic initiatives is to develop and curate programs that position the
    organization as a thought leader in legacy development. As such, we will:
    1 | increase awareness of the incredible need within our society (1 in 20 children, aged 15 and under, will suffer the loss of a parent)
    2 | develop products of value for families and communities we serve
    3 | deliver unparalleled service in a way that is sustainable on a national scale

    The expansion of these resources will not only complement the families we host, but also serve families and caregivers
    nationwide who are unable to attend our Legacy Retreat®.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Inheritance of Hope has grown our pool of volunteers to 232. We have solid partnerships that allow us to deliver life-changing Legacy Retreats® while stretching the donated dollar. IoH has Founders who have lived through the illness and death of a parent, as well as an Executive Director who has the perspective of facing both the illness and loss of a spouse.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We are able to see the life-changing impact through reviews at greatnonprofits.org. Since 2011, IoH has been named Top-Rated, consistently receiving highest reviews.

    Inheritance of Hope has also been recognized as "Top 10 Children's Charity in North America" by Thervive, a network of licensed therapists and psychologists.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    As of January 2015, IoH has served 238 families from 38 states. We continue to cultivate relationships with new partners to host Legacy Retreats® in new locations.
