Adopting and maintaining strong ethical practices is a choice. It is a wisely made choice.
Upper Valley Cares Proverb
Warren Buffet has consistently exhibited transparency throughout his successful business endeavors. One method of his transparenncy is to allow all persons to ask questions and receive honest answers in return. We support this method of transparency and take it a step further. We believe that the community members should always be able to see the existing needs as well as what revenue has been received from donations. Additionally, we believe that all community members and donors should be able to see how and where the funds were applied.
It is this ethical behavior that develops and nurtures the bridge of trust between the community and those at Upper Valley Cares that serve the community. To foster the trust and to respect and honor the donations received, we move beyond simply providing annual summaries of financial information. Instead, all financial documents related to the operations of Upper Valley Cares will be displayed on this page of the website and will be updated on a monthly basis.
Financials of Upper Valley Cares
The UVCares mental health clinic recently opened for services so there are no historical financial documents.
In alliance with our full disclosure policy, our financial documents, except the names of the donors and amounts, will be available to be viewed. The documents will be updated monthly.
A link to the financial documents will be posted here and all members of the public will be able to review the read-only documents via the link.
Full transparency is very important to UVCares and the relationships with all of its stakeholders so we will never waiver from all members of the public having awareness of all of UVCares' operations and associated activities. In order to accomplish this, we needed to purchase an additional financial platform (where we maintain our financial records and data entries) license so that the license can be used by the public. The licenses are expensive so we purchased only one license. This means that only one person at a time can use the access link.
Always feel free to use the access link but please be mindful that there may be others who also desire to use the link. It is possible for us to purchase more license access links but due to the cost, we chose to purchase one link and use our other funds toward our primary focus which is to support the costs associated with ensuring free mental health services to UV community members. Thank you for your understanding and appreciation of our full transparency policy. UVCares belongs to the community and the community should always know all of the details associated with their mental health clinic.
Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz Through the Katz-Amsterdam Charitable Trust Awards UVCares a $50,000.00 Grant to Open a Free Mental Health Clinic
BROOMFIELD, Colo.—Dec. 10, 2019 — Today, Vail Resorts Chief Executive Officer Rob Katz and his wife, Elana Amsterdam, New York Times bestselling author and founder of Elana’s Pantry, announced significant contributions to further strengthen emotional wellness programs in more than ten mountain communities where Vail Resorts operates. The second annual distribution of behavioral health grants issued by the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust (KACT) benefits over 40 non-profit organizations to reduce the stigma of mental illness, improve access to mental and behavioral health services and support collaboration within and among mountain communities.
“It has been inspiring to see the shared desire that exists across each of our mountain communities to make a difference, to help others and to ignite a passion for creating truly healthy communities,” said Katz. “We are thrilled to be able to help unite so many incredible organizations and support their collective efforts to improve access to much-needed health services and reduce the stigma and misunderstanding around these issues.” The grant announced today further enables collaboration and innovation across mountain communities in British Columbia, Washington, California, Utah, Colorado, Vermont and New Hampshire. “We are very grateful for the generous grant from Rob Katz and Elana Amsterdam,” said Becki Subido, Board President of UV Cares. “With this support, UVCares will work to address the very important need for mental health services in the Upper Valley communities by opening a free mental health clinic, available to the full community.”
