Organization: Wilder Research (MN Compass Team)

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: Wilder Research is part of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, and shares the foundation's mission to enrich the lives of the vulnerable and disadvantaged. From our first study in 1917 to today, our research has focused on getting at the heart of community concerns and examining issues that are often overlooked or misunderstood. Our clients share our dedication. They include nonprofit agencies and service providers, government agencies, foundations, and policymakers. Each year, we issue about 250 reports that help these organizations better understand major social issues and how they can most effectively address them. We are committed to conducting research that is practical, meaningful, and useful. Being part of an operating foundation gives us an immediate link to service programs, and the unique opportunity to test and evaluate innovative programming. Whenever possible, we share the results of our studies so others can learn from them.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
