You need someone ask her why so it does take time again it’s all about relationships and then we’ll also talk about campaign the annual campaign we’re making for example you’re going for funding of your summer camp brokers to a capital where it be anything from you wanna build a building for your organization to where you wanna renovate a space that you have and then also plan giving or talk about planned giving’s against planned giving it takes time but when we are able to do plan giving and build that program to be able to get funding that will help you for the rest of your future we have some people at the boys and Girls Club who have written us in their will and when they pass on summer give us land but they want us to actually sell I’m I’m gonna I’m giving us their IRA account R giving U.S. stocks when I when I pass on so it’s a typically people knees although we do have some people who are giving us their $10,000 life insurance that they might get from from their company that they work at so that would help a lot too it’s not only a person that means necessarily might be a person like me who just really cares about that organization wants to give away that they can and one way they might already have a major life insurance policy and this is like a small one that they feel that they you know give and add the boys and Girls Club or another organization is as a benefactor so there’s so many different ways to get any of these familiar with you that you’ve used for whether we worked for a nonprofit and how to work on getting funding or whether you just have read a lot about it so you never understand yeah we actually grants OK power hungry it’s coming out of France we’re talking about kids by force but this much pride you know random great yeah no yes yeah I also know a lot about grants from the course last semester I love you yes I think I’ve seen that’s correct that’s really so the granted applied for how they been from private foundations and corporations like Hanover or the government or you know like state or federal funding let it have you been successful my hand you know preparation well but also acoustic foundation yes other organizations like Fletcher so greater western Community Foundation is considered a Community Foundation even has in the main where the Fletcher foundation he’s speaking about is actually a Family Foundation many many years ago I think over 100 years ago the Fletcher family established a fund a foundation and in their bylaws it states it needs to go to a Worcester nonprofits so they entertain applications about four times a year and they fund everything from the arts to small capital improvements there are wonderful foundation in blisters actually lucky they have about 1010 major family foundations on top of the four blocker foundations like Hanover and then you ask about Community Foundation that’s the main Community Foundation and Mr obviously but it happens since I think almost all essential mass bridge Community Foundation so they serve a big region but again it’s in their bylaws so just like we as a nonprofit have bylaws regarding what we’re going to do a foundation also has rules and regulations that they have developed and bylaws state that for example everything from we will have at least three trustees at all times one of which might be from the Fletcher family the other two you know appointed they might say things like we will make decisions four times a year of which only 4% of the interest will be given from our you know foundation so just like we have to have by laws and regulations and a mission and a vision uh foundation also have that so um France I’ll give an example people think special events are wonderful and they are you can stand hundreds of hours of getting special event ready and maybe make 50,000 which is not bad you could spend maybe 10 hours on significant grant again $1,000,000 so I think special events are important but I would always say only get it passed and we do it if it requires everyone on your team still this just on that special event whether it be a golf term or whatever it might not be in your best interest rate might not be big enough to do a big special event is it really pulls everyone where I highly recommend when you have it growing nonprofit that it’s possible to hire either as a consultant or as a team member a grant writer grant writing is special Allison you took the course like it’s not like any regular type of riding you know certainly if you’re a good writer it will benefit you to learn how to print right just because I’m good creative writer or essay writer doesn’t mean necessarily that they’re good grant writer so I think it’s really important that again you wouldn’t necessarily want the executive director CEO do all the grant writing ’cause this pulling the executive or CEO from doing other important things so when it ever possible hiring someone to write the fridge whether they be on staff or whether the consultant especially for big grants it’s really important to matter fact I know that there’s some nonprofits that hired obese woke to write grants special maybe they should handle the smaller grants but there’s a big federal government branch do they’ll have her focus on that so they can do all this smaller things but you know I highly recommend I I was still valid for nonprofits when they decided to do it and they don’t have anyone who’s really done great running before and they’re like our mission is so great why don’t we get funded and sometimes there could be a lot of difference but sometimes because they just weren’t able to present what they’re doing in a manner that would excite with the funder you know so I think it’s really important that when possible inquire professionals to help with grant writing for sure I need you familiar with microloans so if you’re stuck and somebody you’re thinking of starting a nonprofit if you’re starting a nonprofit you might be eligible for a small business loan uh and uh micro needs something smaller up to for 500 to 50,000 so that’s certainly one way we would be able to come out apply for a loan have you all heard of exude a AX UDA so digital credit union or digital credit union they they’re pretty movement yes there are credit union in central Massachusetts and they’re very successful and they started this exuded program where an individual say you’re the executive director or you’re you’re hoping to start a nonprofit that apply it’s only up to $600 but what’s what’s beautiful about it is you do not pay back in interest and they give you a full year to pay back so you might say I’m gonna pay you $60 a month after 10 months and pay you back there’s no interest so that’s called a a small microphone but zoo that would be an example of a small black book sometimes I blister Chamber of Commerce also has micro loans and you go on to the Worcester Chamber of Commerce website to find out so I did provide this is I’m a little I did provide their their website also but Michael Moser are good because typically you don’t have to provide the proof adapter for a big business on right I mean that they would want to know like what you have for equity and things like this this is something where they’re taking a little bit more of a chance with you but then you’re not gonna get as much money that makes sense yeah so you said that you were talking about special events and special events sometimes take something yeah so we cannot understand it was support function speech that is true take up a lot of tears spending all my money get out of that it’s a little bigger than that right I think it depends on what we write the boys and Girls Club can get half $1,000,000 grant yeah so we’re gonna be like like if you’re playing for our brand but normally they don’t give you like 50% but you know like that 20% or something like that so sometimes it depends right for you I think for your special events but but we only do like two to three year and they’re based on our vision I’ll have a bit more about special events but again the money and also but it’s a special event besides the time can really eat into your profits we had a very successful day la it was at Elm park with the first to have a big gala under the lights big white tent is beautiful at Alan Parker Worcester but we were able to make it successful we actually after all of our costs expenses we still raked in 200,000 so that was worth it burns but something else you wanna look at is are you making friends if you’re gonna make new friends is worth it too and I feel like the game that we were able to make some new friends which really did help impact our ability to continue to fund the following year especially ’cause we literally had that September of 2019 and had planned to do another one in September of 2020 but guess what happened the pandemic and so it was actually good that we had had it 2019 it will still stay in touch with some of the new dollars we met through the gala and keep them after the age for example in January of 2020 to 2021 and now it’s 2022 we sent them a count as kids we can we wanna make sure it fit needs our mission so as our kids thanking them and talk about how great the club was and things like that and then we also have done lots of the kids have created and sent out to large donors so we’re gonna keep them engaged still even though they weren’t able to catch anymore on site events but it was a sponsorships that allowed us to make more money I’m getting example we decided for the gala that to be a presenting sponsor that they will be 50,000 and we’re able to get three companies give us 50,000 so we already had 150 right there and then we have some other ones that were from 1000 to 25,000 so something for everyone we also did an auction we were able to make some money but it took so many hours I really still believe it was worth it it was a lot though we still had to do the grants so how to do face to face solicitation still had to do all these other activities you get to that goal that’s what I would say is that even if grants bread and butter still need do other things you don’t have to put all your insulin basket I think there’s the pandemic certainly taught us that that when you put your eggs in one basket it really could backfire it really can’t and you know there were some organizations that thought they were gonna just rely on fees for service but because they had to close for a while to be on site they didn’t have other sources of funding and so people who maybe I’m just making this up maybe pay at that nonprofit to have a health membership where they could you know use the fitness center and the pool because of kovid they weren’t able to be on site for the first three months you have to remember March 2020 the end of June of 2020 no one was allowed on site unless you were emergency child their fitness centers were considered emergency so they were closed so for three months they were not profits it did not have the for service programming and that really hurt them so those who had ran some other ways to get revenue who did better than those who mostly relied on deeper service that makes sense any questions on micro loans so then there’s regular bank loans uh I would say with bank loans they definitely will be worth it but again I think for us to hear a startup it would be very tricky to get it like you don’t have a history they’re not able to look and see well you make this revenue last year so therefore I think they got that loan so I think it’s harder I think they would if you ask her 25,000 or less and were able to show what your revenue or business plan is you might be able to get the loan but I think it is tricky to get a regular loan no and I would say again I think it might be more successful for you to do crowdfunding especially if you don’t necessarily need a lot of money’cause if you look at that 34 billion is raised worldwide crowdfunding 2015 that was the most recent I was able to get even more now that I think about that that’s just amazing to me alright then we’ll put a pause on this because our guest speakers are here yay hi Kim hi Monica please come to the come to the front of the class so this is Monica Roland camp salmon I didn’t know if you wanted to introduce yourself I think you’re gonna be the first speakers I sure OK great first one and then yeah sounds like everyone has to ask so we wanted to show it I’ll be like your banner
My name is Monica Lobo and I’m the vice president of community health transformation community benefits are you mask memorial house you want to advance it to wear like this anyways so that that’s who I am I’m actually originally from Columbia hi born and raised there and then I went to school in Providence RI so I’m a graduate or Brown University my background is in anthropology and also public health I mean working at UMass them Oriel close to 20 years before that I actually was ten years at UMass medical school and it’s all he could say practically all my life I’ve been working on programs that should support any proves the quality of life for horrible population specifically around axis so let’s see what else can I tell you about um before we begin I am going to tell you a little bit about UMass memorial tell you about what we do in terms of working with that community and community projects funding projects how we can move our work and some of our guiding principles and also touch upon which the anchor mission is turn it off a little bit about that strategy that health care systems and other institutions are constant country and being tackling but at any rate UMass memorial you went too fast go back to UMass memorial please yeah so he met we are the largest private health Max we actually have 16,000 employees we are a for campus we have the Worcester and moral campus and went down at university in Canada those are different campuses then we have our N we have health alliance Clinton message Brooklyn’s Terraria covering north county about this our hospital and then last year we acquired a parenting in Southbridge so that’s how we have our core system and we’re the also the clinical partner for UMass medical school so all their residents interns they’re all you know coming into our system to get their own patients and get trained and then uh we we aren’t what’s called a safety net hospital hospital with one that actually has really a large amount of uninsured patients in our system so that’s designated income there whether you have insurance for that we have we take you in as such it’s a classification we’re not for profit so we don’t pay any taxes and actually that’s important for me to say because I’m actually that’s where my work comes in call community health link is the one other program behavioral health they are affiliating with plus they’re mostly taking care of you know sucks he moves from and also some of the homeless um artwork is actually community benefits work so we as a hospital we don’t pay taxes so we have to do some community activities the IRS internal Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts attorney general specs now two provide activities with the community talk a little bit more about that but what is important here to say is that we do have a community benefit mission and I’m really happy about this because I committed definition and really builds up on the on on the definition of health you must Memorial Health crystal managed to improving the health status of all those it served to addressing the health problems with them for another medically underserved population it’s basically in addition some medical conditions of negatively impact the health and Wellness of our community on earth dress but it’s not just about access to health it’s also this is is is cascading down from the World Health Organization survival arm explode about how basically why do we keep sending people back to their community without really addressing social determinants of health factors so 20 years ago now everybody’s talking about social 20 years ago our board of trustees approved this mission but I feel really happy because we were always trying to be ahead of the curve and they were now people in my sister would look at me and say that’s not our problem our problem is to have people come in and take care of them but if you take care of them but you’re not considering what’s happening to them outside the hospital watch if you are for example you have asthma you have triggers in the home and you can’t fix that those I was telling this afternoon to another group of students that if we don’t address those issues outside the hospital walls that they’re gonna be coming back you’re not gonna get better and you know what it’s gonna cost more money so same thing with a diabetic with diabetic comes in to the emergency room they don’t you know they wait until really things get really bad they are looking for a place where to live by roof it’s when they get really bad they go to the emergency room but then they get sent back out so they want they go under the bridge she’s outside so then they come back and they they gotta have their medication it’s worse so now everybody is thinking Healthcare is changing now we have we’re not getting reimbursed yet for social determinants of health but it’s on the horizon when I work in a medical school it was about medical interpreting we got six hospitals in this area that then Kim grew up here on my transplant but there were six hospitals I went down to two mega systems and what would happen is that there were no interpreters and so if you spoke Spanish I happen to be talking Spanish if there was somebody in the emergency room I would be pulled over and forced to not force but asked to interpret well you know America is a skill for now 25 years later medical interpreti is part of doing business in the same thing I think it’s gonna happen is that these these insurance companies there’s already a movement Kim has worked in the insurance side we would need solution that they don’t come a time the way that we’re going to be reimbursed is not counting you know if for every Jason you’re gonna get this and it it’s really long it’s gonna become different payments we’re gonna pay you how well you take care of your patient so after Cassie social determinants of health community health workers will be part of the businesses in the future so that’s coming down the Pike so let’s see the next the next one is I talk about he requirements so we don’t pay taxes instead but we need to report to the IRS they make us and something things are good we have to do reporting on schedule H so this time I’m sorry to work with my finance department and to the catalog all the activities related to community work that we’ve done and also the Massachusetts attorney general requires that we report to them so if you get on the web page of internee Jeremy and you look for commuting benefits report you’ll see our report and then the other piece is every three years we have to do a community health needs assessment actually that’s How I Met him because back in 2012 thereabouts in 2008 we started working with vision of poverty counts and we get our first we call it in the chart when we talked but in 2012 ’cause every three years you have to do it basically you know we looked at the data we have focus groups we have key stakeholders you know what do you think are the issues impacting the community because you know what for me as a hospital maybe I’m thinking certain way but in a community maybe thinking you know that fasting that transportation now Thor iti cup but we you know we can’t get to your hospital list transportation you know how am I gonna get there So what basically is making a point that if we need to talk to people that’s what we think is important it’s not necessarily work and sometimes these data bases are are not updated we did our chop and put the 2021 chop but you know what there was still we had been I had to present to my room prestige and get approval but we’re gonna have to update that because when we needed to present it for approval there was still that sense it’s we’re really like his box right so they still had a whole bunch of after we need to update any way she used to make a story short we also have to write a report with that report actually does it’s always a year behind but no files and year later so do I need report is on our page we have to do a lot around Clovis so we are seeing oh thought it was important that we do COVID testing and vaccination we have a care mobile program that goes back to 22 school and provides oral health Worcester doesn’t have any pride in its water supply so it’s all identified as a huge need so you have a lot of children particularly those 22 schools or schools that that are how I’m not my children so we made our priority to the care mobile which you see in in the slide up above and if you want to hit that once a sick leave benefits report here yeah so we have a dental laboratory and want it and then we also have a medical and you would say you know what’s our model for medical well I like to stay where we’re bringing in people who are not connected to care or who can get in here so we go to 12 different neighborhood sites and you come into that care mobile we treat you like anybody else who has full insurance it’s beautiful and it’s actually license under our clinical system so our approach to our work so we we have some funding I have some some discretionary funding and that’s what our approach is guided by these principles so health equity is at the core of all our work we there’s a lot of inequities going on particularly around health care so that for us is fundamental in fact actually I think it was in 2012 when we did a community health needs assessment Dallas one of the things is that we wanted to make sure that all it had a cross cutting across all the things all the things identified that equity was performed and also we also did social determinants of health worth waiting here because she was one of she when she was at Valentine with one of the keys leading organizations with the whisted division of public health to get this assessment going partner with public health do you know how many hospitals are still staying there Simon apartment now we really have actually reform some great part professional partnership with our colleague Karen Clark at public health things that you know we felt there was important also cross cultural cross cross sectoral and multi sectoral so it’s not just about it with the health care but it’s important to also reach out to other organizations so for example we have partnership with the one of the community Development Corporation is in 2008 housing practice about that in several you know you could go I mean the more the marrier you need help you can leverage maybe your contribution is something else it doesn’t have to be money I mean it it doesn’t have to be in kind it could be different things and also their community knows best really when you talk to people they know and so you need to respect go out and hear the voice of the community up to you and then we have what’s called the incubation and basically what it is more about that later it is that’s a strategy right so my work is community health improvement fermenting the dots but that is a strategy where we’re using internal assets in the system to try to have an impact in the long run in the community we’re looking at investments that means that we have everybody all clinical systems has a pot of money it’s called investment or but if we can use some of that money to not grants but unknown to the community very low grade maybe we could make a difference we’re a big employer let’s hire from our backyard let’s not try to bring people from outside because if your employee you work in in in in the area you’re gonna have insurance and you know people you’re gonna be healthier and you’re gonna have you’re gonna have a job and hopefully you won’t be in poverty so um hiring is important and then also procurement we do over $1 billion for purchasing or what can we gain our hope for polio look and see if there are things that we can tell for local procurement and lastly with 16,000 employees Royce for special projects be available to work so that so that the information builds up on those assets can you go back a little bit more sorry after Theta ada speaks we know what neighborhoods really are in bad shape in this community just from living here for a long time but when you really go grill down you have it right there that speaks mountains for people who for probably 20 to fund your efforts and then identifying the community health needs band other plant we have to have our own internal strategic benefits plan but we cannot change just doing that it’s not going to help so that’s why in 2012 we started our community health improvement plan for the community and that in itself is a class so the coalition for a healthy grader will start is now just driving four steps working on making sure that some of those strategies getting to the Community Housing plans for the community so if you get on on the founder web page you’ll see there OK next I talked already about so important that social equity social determinants of health those social economic factors education I mean really why we why should we worry about education well yeah we’re not able to get the Barnacle populations educated you know they’re not it’s we’re not gonna make a difference so social determinants of health and HealthEquity is like from the mentally our strategy or us and then we can go to the map yeah one more just like that wanted an example you know what kind of things have we done yeah so this is just kind of what the plants I already talked about the camel bill well uh in yellow those are either the schools or the stops that we do we have we had because now actually it has a permanent home a mental health model for youth actually it’s projected to the boys and Girls Club now in seven hills but usually we have actively amplify circle flat of Clark Inspector Laurie Ross actually developed that mental health model where you had counselors at specific locations where news congregate and that they would get some leave they are available to address issues that impact the youth things that were that probably maybe impacting quality of night then they work with that that population Rick and usually last night yes there was a girl with website sector was another site night he did one at girls Inc yes we regard YMCA and YWCA YMCA girls think was for that but now it’s anchor at seven with seven hills I think that money is flowing in now because with all of mental health issues that have happened with academic my understanding is that we need to get we need like a string for that so she’s like gaming yeah it’s like so many times we know we were working off on making sure that program recreation Worcester is a program there in the summer we do with the city of Worcester basically again are you barnickel use your site for that so so there she’s a boys boys across part with being a partner with us so you have two people here that you know I’m looking partner that offers up during the summer months with parents at work making sure those kids have a place to go in the park they’re learning and they’re exercising their having activities they’re having meals for some of them the school stops and they may be getting nails at school but what happens very much summer so they they have a meal program and many times actually the parents would also at the end of the day would also have a meal when they come and pick up first time home ownership program I do wanna talk about that ’cause II I feel so good about that that we had an opportunity to put some money in development partnership with the Bayside CBC and we decided to put that money towards subsidise down payment thanks so much thanks So what did that mean is for example I have employee of mine it wasn’t limited to employees for the community but they were able to get a down payment if you qualify and we didn’t do any of that we just said to the site CBC basically amount of money you know all the criteria is by in terms of aligning it with the government criteria for loans and things like that and I legibility but I had for example I had a single parent in Floyd with several kids making you know at that point maybe around I don’t know but then probably $12 an hour living in subsidized housing and I said listen you gotta go and talk to these people because you know what you can get adopting and and see if they could qualify you might be able to get out of Washington Heights and be able to buy your own home but if you do qualify you’re gonna have to train the train to be a homeowner you can be a man Lord and that’s when I’m …
