Notes from the Nonprofit

The Anberry Foundation has submitted its request for reinstatement for tax exempt status and should receive it any day now. It was told that it would take about 30 days from submission as it was granted permission to do it on an expedited basis and on the short form. Guide star will be updated as soon as it is available. Due to the fact that the foundation has just restarted its activity there are no financial year end records that have been created. Next report will be due by May 2015 and will be available at that time.

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?
    Have 20 new accounts, 6 trips made to Africa. Also hire the necessary staff to handle the load of pharmaceuticals that will be collected. Distribute all the medications that e have on hand by the year end. and Provide each of the med suppliers with the necessary marketing photos and information.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Hire a leader in the reverse distributor business, obtain an armored vehicle. Secure a long range jet for deliveries to Africa. create more board member positions with individuals who are either professionals in the Pharm. return business and or physicians and pharmacists for the board positions.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    will be ascertained when they are hired. there will be those who do not appear to have the necessary qualifications however they will be tested by interviews by myself and scott.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Not sure what the indicators mean or if they are necessary for us to report on in this slot. if so we will provide later.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We are as a business with a new venture and low initial start up capital doing very well. I do not see the need to analyze how we have done but to realize how far we still need to go to get the first job done.

Principal Officer

Roger Berryman Steppe Jr.


Scott Stockdale


Founder - the Anberry Foundation in 1991 received 501c3 status in 1993. Principal and CEO of 7 Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Hospitals and 1 ASC since 1985. Implemented first CARF accredited SNF for acute Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation in western US in 1993. Began medical mission work in 1975. Took team of medical professionals with medications to Rwanda in 1994, completing 13 trips to over 10 countries in Africa. 2013 visited 6 hospitals and 4 clinics in Kenya and Tanzania to prepare for receipt of medications scheduled for late 2014 delivery.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The foundation was set up to help for profit hospitals and pharmaceutical companies to gain recognition in the healthcare industry by changing their perception by redirecting their medications scheduled for returns to exporting them to selected hospitals and clinics etc in Africa and other countries. There is a shortage of the latest medications to treat those who are in critical need of relief of tremendous suffering. I discovered the idea while my head nurse was destroying as required the unexpired medications in my hospital. By giving a 501c3 receipt for the value of the unexpired medications the for profit healthcare providers in America can improve their financial position while improving their image in the community. This is achieved by exporting the medications free of charge to the indigenous people who cannot afford treatment for their illness. Instead of paying to have medications destroyed when they are near the expiration date , 60 days before expiration those medications can be taken out of the country and used by developing countries for the 45-60 days left before expiration. After the medication is exported and received by the hospitals Anberry foundation will produce the marketing to the communities and beyond of the good will actions of the US business, showing that they are not solely for profit and in fact demonstrate providing care to those who cannot afford to pay for it. The motives of these US businesses for providing care can now include helping others for which they do not make a profit just like the not for profit providers in America. Simply put what would be their waste they would have to pay to have destroyed now can be used to save lives by making the donation to Anberry for the medications and paying for the shipping costs what they would other wise pay for the medications to be destroyed. Logistics, and the unique arrangement of each of the players works to benefit every one in the wheel of the Anberry Foundation mission."
