Employees For A Healthier Community

The need for healthcare services is in greater demand now than ever in the history of our foothill community.   For this reason, The Nonprofit Partnership has joined hands in demonstrating how collaboration is a key component in providing resources during a challenging economy.


“With a combined experience of 351 years serving El Dorado County, the positive impact upon our neighbors is greatly multiplied through this fundraising collaboration that has achieved great success working together,” related Karen Good, CFRM, CNEL, executive director of Marshall Foundation and founder of The Nonprofit Partnership.


Thanks to Marshall Employees, checks were distributed to local health-related nonprofits with each organization receiving $10,000.  The “Employees for a Healthier Community” campaign at Marshall raised $120,000 in one-year pledges in 2010.


As a direct result of the generosity of El Dorado County Employees, checks totaling over $10,000 have been distributed to 12 local nonprofits to meet the increasing needs of clients receiving services locally.  Thanks to the continued help of generous employees, the opportunity to help those in need will continue.

“Support is greatly multiplied through The Partnership and has a greater impact upon the community needs than just contributing to a few charities alone,” resounded David Ashby, executive director of New Morning Youth and Family Services.  “Thanks to the generosity of those participating in making a difference to keep our community healthier, the entire community benefits!”

The following are the current certified participating organizations:

Big Brothers, Big Sisters of El Dorado County

Boys & Girls Club of El Dorado County

CASA El Dorado

Food Bank of El Dorado County

Hands 4 Hope
Marshall Foundation for Community Health
Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises (MORE)

Susie Davies, executive director of Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises (MORE) said, “The Nonprofit Partnership has succeeded in not only serving the community well, but in providing consistent local educational opportunities through The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).  This internationally recognized association adheres to high ethical standards and endorses the Donor Bill of Rights.  This educational component is becoming an essential tool for local fundraising leadership by providing access to quality presentations as well as resources on current giving trends and fundraising standards.”


John Adams, executive director of CASA El Dorado County, explained, “The Partnership has also accomplished bringing free CEO/Executive Director training to our area through the national Vistage model.  Trained volunteers meet monthly to steer our nonprofit leaders in working through challenges and creating improved leadership by example.”  The group is open to any executive director willing to make a one-year commitment to the monthly sessions.

The Nonprofit Partnership also believes in giving back to their community and encourages volunteerism as well as personal mentoring of other nonprofit organizations.
