Economic Impact Analysis

Opportunity:

The Wingspan Care Group is a community-based network of organizations serving children in need. By sharing resources and expertise, the collective group has a more profound impact on the children, families, and communities they serve. Wingspan engaged Silverlode to conduct an economic and fiscal impact analysis to quantify these outcomes.

Solution:

Silverlode completed three comprehensive economic and fiscal impacts analyses which assessed the direct and indirect benefits of the Wingspan organizations at the local, county, and state levels. We analyzed Wingspan's impact on employment and wages, taxes, health and human services, and other critical parts of the economy and community. Silverlode found that the total economic activity supported by the capital investment and ongoing activities of Wingspan was over $114 million and that the organizations supported over 1,500 jobs.

Wingspan continues to use our reports to concisely and effectively communicate the impact of its human service organizations to the community, government entities, and other stakeholders. Silverlode completes a new analysis for Wingspan every two years.
