Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Northridge Hospital Foundation reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

Some of Northridge Hospital's Foundation fund raising activities were postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, through our generous supporters who stand behind our mission to support the charitable purposes and activities of Northridge Hospital, the impact of their gifts resulted in providing free mammograms to the under-served, to educating the community about safety measures during COVID-19, to making a Substance Abuse Navigator available in the Emergency Department, and funding home-based intervention for pregnant and postpartum women in LA County. Our ability to offer outstanding programs, services, and technology is a testament to our compassionate donors who continue to give for the betterment of our community.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Northridge Hospital Foundation transitioned it's events and programs to a virtual setting. The Foundation was able to secure a grant that supplied our Welcome Baby staff with IPADS to continue providing education to new parents via telehealth.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

Northridge Hospital Foundation rapidly transitioned it's events during COVID-19 to virtual events.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

The Jade Lee Marasigan Charitable Fund was created by Jade's family in collaboration with Northridge Hospital Foundation, after Jade tragically ended her own life during the pandemic. The fund assists adolescents and young adults diagnosed with depression, anxiety and other behavioral health conditions. COVID-19 shed light on an increase in depression among our youths, and Northridge Hospital Foundation is committed to helping our adolescents treat these debilitating conditions.

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


Each year the Northridge Hospital Foundation hosts 300 children from local title one schools within the San Fernando Valley and treats them to an unforgettable day of fun with games, treats and of course, jolly old St. Nick! Each child receives a gift bag with essentials for the school year as well as fun games to enjoy. Staff join in as elves cooking up some cotton candy, popcorn, and ice cream for all to enjoy. There are several booths the kids can visit and play some carnival games, get their faces painted, and dye their hair. The event culminates as Santa arrives in a giant big red fire truck, thanks to our local fire station. Each child visits with Santa and gets their picture taken. As the COVID-19 census began to climb in December at the hospital, and schools transitioned to online learning, the Northridge Hospital Foundation got creative and decided to take Holiday Jam on the Road! The Foundation elves, Northridge Hospital Foundation Board Members, and Volunteers, packed, stuffed and loaded up trucks to drop off gift bags to Blythe Elementary, Cantara Elementary, Michelle Obama Elementary, Panorama City Elementary, and Parthenia Elementary. The Foundation was able to continue the tradition of Holiday Jam, spread joy and humankindess to these schools despite the pandemic.

...   Culture & Community


This score provides an assessment of the organization's engagement with the constituents it serves, a practice we term Constituent Feedback. When organizations listen to constituents, they are able to better deliver on programs and meet the needs of stakeholders. A future version of this Beacon will also assess an organization's people operations and its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) metrics.


Culture & Community Score

Northridge Hospital Foundation is currently not eligible for a Culture & Community score because we have not received its Constituent Feedback data.

Constituent Feedback

Constituent Feedback


Constituent Feedback and Listening Practice data are not available for this organization. Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to fill out the How We Listen section of their Candid profile. This data will provide the basis for the initial evaluation of Culture & Community.


Charity Navigator believes nonprofit organizations that engage in inclusive practices, such as collecting feedback from the people and communities they serve, may be more effective. We award every nonprofit that completes the Candid survey full credit for this Beacon, in recognition of their willingness to publicly share this information with the nonprofit and philanthropic communities. Although the data is not evaluated for quality at this time, future iterations of this Beacon will include third party or other data that will serve to validate the information provided by the nonprofit.

Analysis and Research


Like the overall Encompass Rating System, the Culture & Community Beacon is designed to evolve as metrics are developed and ready for integration. Our partnership with Feedback Labs and Guidestar by Candid, and other partners including Fund for Shared Insight, GlobalGiving, and Keystone Accountability, enables us to launch the first version of this beacon with Constituent Feedback information collected on Candid's site.


Feedback practices have been shown to support better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion outcomes, an essential area of assessment that we intend to further expand and develop in the future. Feedback Labs has documented several studies which indicate that beyond achieving organizational goals, nonprofits that are attentive and responsive to concerns and ideas raised by beneficiaries establish stronger relationships with the people they serve, promote greater equity, and empower constituents in ways that can help to ensure better long-term outcomes. You can find resources to help nonprofits improve their feedback practices here.
