OUR IMPACT

The primary purpose of the Impact Committee is to connect with our non-profit grantees to increase understanding of how our funds benefit their granted projects and the community at large. Impact members learn about each grant project, build a collaborative relationship supporting grant projects and see first hand how our grant impacts the non-profit’s clients and by extension the Wood River Valley and beyond. They make an initial welcoming phone call, schedule a site visit, if applicable to the project, and have a concluding conversation when the project is completed. Final reports are written and submitted to the Impact Chair by both the Impact member and the non-profit.  The non-profits’ reports on outcomes and community impact are compiled and posted on the WRWF website for the full membership and the public to read.

ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES

Impact Teams are assigned to support each year’s grantees..  Each team works with one nonprofit over the course of the grant year, they:

  • Learn about the non-profits’ work by attending the nonprofits’ activities as appropriate
  • Make midyear site visits to discuss progress of the projects
  • Hold an end-of-year debriefing with grantees to identify the effectiveness of projects and the community impact
