Measuring Effectiveness

The Challenge

Hundreds of nonprofits, guided by talented and dedicated leaders, are stepping up to address the critical, unmet needs of military families across the spectrum of active duty, wounded and fallen, veterans and dependents. But, how do you as a donor discover and evaluate the finest, most effective nonprofit organizations serving the military?

The Solution

The Patriots Initiative’s Directory identifies those exceptional organizations that have engaged in ‘best practices’ and have proven themselves to be effective, efficient and reliable service providers. Each charity has completed a comprehensive questionnaire and undergone a thorough evaluation by TPI staff and a Board Review Committee to confirm their capabilities, expertise and effectiveness by focusing on eight criteria:

Measuring Effectiveness

Financial Condition

Efficiency (the % of Revenues directed to the program)

Transparency, Accountability, Governance

Leadership and Staff Commitment

Legal and Organizational Status

Accreditations

Other Factors

The result is a comprehensive list of the charitable organizations identified for doing the best work in their area of focus and expertise. The examination is rigorous and many charities do not qualify initially for inclusion in The Directory. However, TPI regularly updates The Directory of recognized nonprofits as new programs and unique causes arise, locally, regionally and nationally, or as reevaluations need to occur. TPI leaders and staff meet from time to time with these organizations to maintain a current understanding of their work.
