What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Futures Without Violence aims to create safer homes, schools and communities for women, children and families.

Through ground-breaking social norm change campaigns, leadership development, prevention education programs and national policy development.

With over 30 years of experience under our belt, we are the nation's leading organization on this issue and continue to be the “go to “ organization for Congress and the White House. We continue to lead the way in ground-breaking education and violence prevention campaigns and continue to reach out to unlikely allies such as: coaches, doctors, HR professionals and teachers. We have been the Advertising Council's exclusive partner on this issue for over 20 years.

We are committed to ensuring the programs we create, design and implement are effective in execution and application. We do thorough testing and evaluation for each of our programs both new and old, and through data collection, evaluation and tracking we are able to see what is working and what isn't.

We were responsible for ensuring the government was collecting data on the issue of violence against women and children. These data points are a key metric as to whether our violence prevention education programs, social norm change campaigns and resources and tools for direct service providers are effective and driving real progress.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1993 and 2010, domestic violence amongst adult women went down by 64% in the United States.

Where there is still a lot more work to do is amongst our young people.

1 in 5 Tweens (11-14 year olds) knows a victim of dating violence and 1 in 5 college women will be sexually assaulted in the U.S. More than 60 percent of kids in the U.S. have been exposed to crime, abuse, and violence – many in their own homes. FUTURES is currently partnering with the Department of Justice and the Ad Council on developing a national public awareness campaign aimed at increasing the public's knowledge about the severity of children's exposure to violence and trauma and effective strategies to help kids heal and thrive.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


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).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
We recently did a full day staff retreat focused solely on race and equity and how we can be more cognizant in all aspects of our programming and operations to be more equitable. We also do meetings throughout the year as reminders and to promote dialogue on the issue within the organization. We have established "Equity and Fairness in Programs and Operations" Guidelines.
