Each organization elects half the Members of the Board of Directors, and appoints a Member Representative. All proceeds are divided equally among the two organizations, funding our many beneficial community programs to help people living in Southern Arizona.
A special thank you to all the staff and volunteers at the Golden Goose, for all they do!
And for those of you know about the wonderful treasures at the Goose everyday, a special treat...
Notable Statistics: IMPACT employs less than a dozen staff (some work part time). Our success lies in the more than 240 volunteers who come each week to work at the customer service desks, at the donor doors, behind the scenes, at our events, and to teach, to cook, to deliver meals and pick up corporate donations. Our volunteers make a difference, everyday! Thank you to all who support our staff and community in this way!
More than 6500 people are registered for service at IMPACT of Southern Arizona!
in 2015, more than 4500 individuals received pantry items, meat, dairy and produce through our food bank programs. More than 24,000 meals were served to seniors in our community - most homebound and unable to cook for themselves. Hundreds of families checked out free clothing - freeing up household incomes to otherwise be spent on added groceries, rent, fuel and utility bills - keeping the heat on longer this winter.
MAKE AN IMPACT IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Consider splitting your $800 tax credit gift to IMPACT this year: $500 by June 30th,
as we wrap up our current fiscal year, which will help fund our summer
programming; and the remaining $300 by December 31. A substantial gift
will qualify you for our donor wall.
When you give to IMPACT you can feel good about donating to an organization that is fiscally responsible. Last year we had a perfect audit. With only 3% of the budget used to cover administrative expenses, your donations go directly to IMPACT programs. This is largely due to our wide variety of community partnerships. Our 240 plus amazing dedicated volunteers give generously of their time each week, allowing us to keep our overhead low and our team of hardworking staff small. However, having a small staff and low administrative costs has not hindered our ability to IMPACT people in a big way. Click Here to go to our Donate page
