The “Why” of What We Do
How important is it for an organization to be clear about why they do what they do? We didn’t really examine that question until our long-time funder/supporter, The Colorado Grand, gave us a challenge last fall.
They have generously given us $573,000 through the years, but in order for us to continue receiving our annual gift from them, they asked us to raise $80,000 in funding commitments on our own by the end of 2016. We’re deeply grateful to the Colorado Grand for all their years of financial support, and this challenge has actually given us renewed purpose.
Yes, this challenge has become an opportunity to build on our solid mission of improving the lives of people with bipolar disorder who can’t afford treatment by providing proven evidence-based therapy. Consequently and more importantly, it has forced us to look at our deepest values.
We came to this conclusion:
We believe that every person has the innate capacity and drive to be the best that they can be, that each human being has an intrinsic desire to be happy, to succeed, and to live a productive life.
With knowledge, support and the right environment, people can thrive. We, at the Sutherland Center, provide individualized treatment programs so each client has the best tools, support and education to manage their bipolar disorder and live the productive life they want. And we have been successfully helping people for almost 15 years with our scientifically grounded state-of-the-art expertise.
For every dollar donated, $0.92 goes directly to diagnosing, treating, managing and improving the lives of those with this complex and challenging illness, and assisting and educating their family and their friends. Thanks to you, we’re helping people every day to LIVE BETTER LIVES!
