In the big picture, some big steps forward

There are so many great things occurring every day at Schreiber that it can sometimes be hard to step back and take stock of what's happening in the bigger picture.
When we do that, though, we can tell you: The bigger picture looks pretty good, too.

In 2014-15, we took several important steps forward.We have a better building. We obtained several substantial donations, including grants from the Stabler and High foundations, that allowed us to replace our aged HVAC system. We also replaced the plumbing, carpeting and repainted throughout the public areas. We managed this without having to spend one dollar from our operating funds.We have better technology. After raising more than $85,000 in dedicated funds, we were able to completely overhaul our IT infrastructure. We replaced two aging, overloaded servers with two new servers. We updated our billing and scheduling software for the first time in 12 years, and we purchased new accounting software for the Finance Office.We raised the bar on fundraising: One of the four main goals of the Schreiber Strategic Plan passed by the Board in September 2014 was to raise $1 million net on annual basis within three years. We reached our goal after one year through increases across all areas of Financial Development. We had the largest fundraiser in Schreiber's history when our annual Phonathon, which only began three years ago, brought in more than $180,000.We also hired staff in all therapy departments to keep pace with increased demand, and our rebranded daycare is filled to capacity. But here's the most important thing to remember: Thanks to your continued partnership and support, we will continue to provide the life-changing services that are so needed within our community. We look forward to sharing more successes as we celebrate our 80th anniversary in 2016.James DeBord is president of Schreiber Pediatric. Jon Hill is chairman of the board of directors.
