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.


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

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Staffing


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

The needs of our affiliated healthcare system increased exponentially and with it an increased need for philanthropic support. Economic uncertainty among individuals, granting organizations and companies made it more difficult to secure gifts. Fundraising events had to go virtual or were cancelled altogether. We reduced our staff by 10%, put a hold on salary/wage increases and reduced our vacation time liability through mandatory time off.


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

Donor relations, a pillar of relationship-based fundraising, had to become completely virtual. Our donors who are older or in ill health had to socially distance for more than a year, which reduced participation in events and programs. COVID protocols at our affiliated hospital system generated deep concern on the part of our donors. We shifted focus to securing fast-moving, COVID-related grants to meet immediate needs.


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

We started with "comfort calls" to our donors to ensure they were adapting to the early stages of COVID. We shifted some fundraising events to become virtual, where possible. Fundraising events such as salons because Zoom presentations. We provided our board leadership with a weekly updates on the COVID situation. Fundraising efforts shifted to vital, COVID-related hospital needs as well as in-kind support for healthcare workers.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

Some events will now be offered in a hybrid model, understanding that even under "normal" circumstances some people cannot attend in person. Donors are interested in health information and we are now the conduit for that information. We also provided a way for the public to honor healthcare workers and will continue that focus.

The nonprofit provides evidence of investment in leadership development


Describe an investment in leadership

HonorHealth Foundation enrolls every staff member in the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) and covers the costs of professional development programming specific to the needs of each individual department. We have also created our own curriculum for ongoing staff training and development. An individual professional development plan is included in each employee's annual evaluation and monitored by the employee and discussed with their supervisor throughout the year. An Executive Operations Committee was created to give the leaders of each department the platform to participate in overall Foundation strategic planning and to receive any support needed in leading their own teams. A planning retreat included opportunities for high performers at all levels to share their expertise through a training for their colleagues. All employees are encouraged to advance in their professional through training, teaching and certifications.

Strategic partnerships include our President/CEO's board service on the Arizona Associate of Non-Profits. Another SVP serves in a leadership role with Valley Leadership on a healthcare impact group. The Foundation communications team builds internal and external awareness of the importance of healthcare and social service programs and how anyone can contribute to the quality of healthcare in their community, using printed materials, social media, website, events and sponsorships.

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.


The COVID pandemic created many issues that required us to adapt quickly without compromising our goals. For our employees, we had to secure the equipment needed to enable 37 staff members to work remotely and then support their ongoing needs for communication, collaboration and productivity. Because our fundraising model is relationship-based, we were challenged to build and deepen relationships with donors from a distance. From comfort call campaigns to virtual salons, to regular COVID updates via Zoom, we stayed connected to our donors and provided them valuable information. Second, we had budgeted event revenue for 2020-21 and quickly made plans to shift to virtual events. We produced two galas and a tea by combining video packages with live hosts and streamed the events. The tea broke its fundraising record and the galas met goal. At the same time, the hospital system our foundation supports experienced increased need for philanthropic funding. The Foundation secured funding for germ-zapping robots, fever scanners, vaccine freezers, employee crisis assistance. And, we continued to provide funding for non-COVID clinical and social service programs. Finally, a generous community consistently stepped up to honor its healthcare heroes and the Foundation served as the coordinator of all in-kind gifs. From food and snacks to hand sanitizer and PPE to face creams and gift cards... the Foundation documented, recognized and distributed each in-kind gift equitably across our six-hospital system.

...   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

Not Currently Scored

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

Note: The absence of a score does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, it only indicates that we have not yet evaluated the organization.

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.
