Children’s Institute continually looks to maximize our impact on the community, while carefully watching finances. In this light, we surveyed other community agencies that have chosen to change the way that they present their annual report. In light of current online trends and cost considerations, Children’s Institute will now publish up-to-date financial data and donor recognition on our website so everyone can review our financial stewardship and receive appreciation for their support of Children’s Institute. However, every other year we will publish a more complete report in hard copy that will share our impact in Rochester and beyond.
Of course, we will continue to update our website with the most current information on our programs, research, and events. We know that those visiting our website are looking for how we are addressing the social and emotional health needs of children. As more and more information is available online, our reach will expand well beyond New York State. We thank you for your continued support of Children’s Institute as we evolve with our changing methods of communications.
