...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-EZ, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $200,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal is to help as many people as possible in Northern Colorado who are struggling or suffering in their grief find positive ways to cope with their loss and deter them from falling into depression, abusing drugs/alcohol, or turning to violence as coping mechanisms.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

Continue offering closed 8-week grief support groups on site. Continue offering monthly Understanding Grief classes (six rotating topics) at our facility to accommodate up to 40 people per month. Continue providing grief education to churches, schools and employers as requested. Continue building and promoting our library of grief resources for public use. Build an outreach program to serve those individuals who are unable to participate in programs at our facility by: - Live streaming and/or record and post our Understanding Grief Classes on our website for people to access from anywhere - Partnering with and train other agency staff or volunteers to facilitate our programs at their organizations (i.e, assisted living facilities, youth detention centers, Boys and Girls Clubs, homeless shelters, etc.)

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

We currently maintain on-site programs and classes and community education with just one full-time executive director who oversees several office volunteers and one full-time volunteer program director who oversees approximately 20 volunteer group facilitators. Our executive director's vision and experience in business development and nonprofit management is already leading us toward our vision. In 2019 we will receive a full-time VISTA Volunteer from United Way Weld County who will focus one or two years on building our outreach programs - volunteer recruitment, funding and data collection processes. We are also putting in grant requests and a call out to Weld County residents to help fund our vision. We have also been selected by the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County to receive a $10,000 match if we can raise $10,000 for an endowment fund by the end of 2020. Part of our long-term sustainability plan includes packaging and selling our grief programs to other organizations around the country. Our donor and volunteer base also continues to grow.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Increased numbers of intakes and client placements in programs Web stats for Understanding Grief Class views Increased donations

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

To date, we have had over 500 individuals attend our Understanding Grief Classes, trained 38 volunteers to facilitate support groups, and almost 300 individuals have gone through one of our 8-week programs. We've also had over 100 kids and teens attend Camp BraveHeart and distributed 100 Backpacks of Hope to schools and churches. Besides building our outreach programs, we also want to have our programs translated into Spanish as we have a high-percentage of older adults who only speak Spanish in our community.
