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.


Latinx Life reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Grants Received


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

Fundraising capacity decrease due to the cancelling of our first in-person event of the year. We had planned to have a 5k fundraiser. Had sponsors, location, volunteer, and staff ready for the event. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel the event for the safety of our participants and our volunteers.


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

As we are a digitally run, we were lucky the majority of our programs we not being affected. However, our in person programs and workshops had to be cancelled for the safety of our community and our staff. We had to shift to COVID-19 safety guidelines and were only able to have in-person events to hand out supplies and information to underserved communities.


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

We created virtual workshops that kept our community active. By creating virtual workout parties, we were able to stay in touch with our community, as well as continue to accomplish our goal to stay positive throughout the pandemic. We were also able to partnered up with various organizations in order to offer COVID-19 supplies to underserved communities in Rockingham County. We were able to distribute over 1,000 supplies including masks, hand sanitizers, wipes, and bilingual information on the disease.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

Utilizing our virtual platforms, we plan to keep certain workshops online for the convenience of our supporters. We are ready to launch our Virtual Safe Space in which we discuss serious topics. By going virtual, people can feel safe and confident to join the discussion and stay informed on serious topics affecting our community such as immigration, women's rights, mental health, and stigmas around us.

Outcomes and Cost

Outcomes: Changes in the lives of those served by a nonprofit. They can be caused by the nonprofit.

Costs: The money spent by a nonprofit and its partners and beneficiaries.

Impact: Outcome caused by a nonprofit relative to its cost.

Cost-effectiveness: A judgment as to whether the cost was a good use of resources to cause the outcome.


Outcome Metric

Increase in income for a scholarship recipient


Outcome Data Source

Ratings are based on data the nonprofit itself collects on its work. We use the most recent year with sufficient data. Typically, this data allows us to calculate direct changes in participants' lives, such as increased income.


Output data collected during the program. The nonprofit submitted data on the dollar value of all scholarships it grants and the number of scholarship recipients, which we use to calculate the additional income that the nonprofit's scholarship program generates.


Method for Attributing Outcomes

We don't know if the observed changes were caused by the nonprofit's program or something else happening at the same time (e.g., a participant got a raise). To determine causation, we take the outcomes we observe and subtract an estimate of the outcomes that would have happened even without the program (i.e., counterfactual outcomes).


We estimate the increase in income caused by a nonprofit's scholarship program in two steps. First, we compare the estimated postsecondary graduation rate of its scholars to that of comparable students who did not receive a scholarship (the “counterfactual”). Our estimates are drawn from rigorous social science studies of similar scholarship programs. The result is the number of scholars whose graduation was caused by the nonprofit. Second, we compare the earnings of graduates to non-graduates based on publicly available census data, matching on student demographic characteristics. We apply the earnings boost owing to a degree to those scholars whose graduation was caused by the nonprofit. Both steps are necessary to properly net out counterfactual successes from observed successes. Otherwise, we would be attributing changes (increase in graduation rate and increase in earnings) to the nonprofit when they would have happened anyway. Few nonprofits estimate the counterfactual themselves, so we construct our own counterfactual estimate based on research and publicly available data.


Cost Data Source

After estimating the program's outcomes, we need to determine how much it cost to achieve those outcomes. All monetary costs are counted, whether they are borne by a nonprofit service deliverer or by the nonprofit’s public and private partners.


Program cost data reported by the nonprofit. Partner and beneficiary costs reported by the nonprofit or estimated by Charity Navigator.


Cost Calculation

$1,100 program costs + $415 partner costs + $415 beneficiary costs = $1,931 total costs


Impact and Determination

We calculate impact, defined as the change in outcomes attributable to a program divided by the cost to achieve those outcomes.

Impact Calculation

$1,931 total costs / $5,321 additional income = roughly $2,100 increases income for a scholarship recipient by $5,900.

Benchmark for Rating

Impact & Results scores of postsecondary scholarship programs are based on income generated relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they increase income for a recipient by more than $1.50 for every $1 spent and a score of 75 if income increases by more than $0.85 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.

Determination

Highly cost-effective
