Enterprise Foundation

Strategy for non-profit coalition to provide low income tax counseling services

The Enterprise Foundation is a national non-profit organization that focuses on the social and economic redevelopment of urban areas. The Enterprise Foundation along with the Cleveland Legal Aid Society, United Way and other local non-profits have worked to develop a framework for establishing a more comprehensive program for providing tax-counseling services especially focused on the Earned Income Tax Credit, within Cuyahoga County. The goal is to increase the number of County residents receiving the tax credit and to help alleviate poverty in the County. Work has included the development and implementation of the program strategy as well as the implementation of technology to help manage the coalition. The Coalition website can be found at refundohio.org.

Our work with Enterprise Community included:

  • Design and management of Coalition committees
  • Implementation of key initiatives to increase residents receiving tax credits
  • Using web services for software rather and individual PC at site locations to reduce technical problems in tax filing and sending
  • Design and branding of program (with support from United Way graphic staff) of logo, design of brochures, and PSA for radio
  • Design, oversight, and implementation of website for volunteers and site locations- www.refundohio.org
  • Presentation and final report development; documentation of needs for continued operation, strategic initiatives to increase supply of services, and maintaining coalition support
