The winning idea was to use paired reading to improve the percentage of third graders reading at basic and above grade level to 95% in six years. This idea developed into our Reading Pipeline program which will begin its third year in the fall.

Return on Investment Award Application Process Now Open!

Posted on: Wednesday , February 8 , 2012

The Community Foundation is currently seeking applications for its annual Return on Investment Award. Return on investment (ROI) is a ratio derived by dividing return by investment, traditionally used by the business industry. Increasingly, however, this concept is becoming relevant to the nonprofit sector. With private donations to charities shrinking and requests for help growing, leverage, impact and ROI are more important than ever. Measuring ROI helps nonprofits assess their effectiveness and efficiency and demonstrate that they are returning value to the community.
