TOU’s adaptable, solutions-focused approach has facilitated a rapid evolution from creating the Think of Us app in 2017-18, to disseminating cutting-edge qualitative research, developing a scalable, evidence-informed model for navigating child welfare services, and working directly with state and federal leaders today. This has been mirrored by steady growth in both earned income and fundraising.
Currently we are seeing strong financial growth balanced between 50% earned (passive income streams based on co-product design and state government contracts) and 50% contributed revenue (multi-year institutional giving and major donors). Based on this trajectory and our ability to nimbly build ecosystem-wide capacity, we're confident that the best is yet to come.
We know it’s important to you that your donation is being used impactfully. It’s important to us, too. We work hard to maintain a culture of accountability, transparency, and trust. Our financial statements reflect sound stewardship, consistent growth in impact, as well as improved operational efficiency year-over-year. Our donors are vital to the work of Think of Us.

Our funders join us in challenging norms and creating change. They are the individuals, corporations, and institutions who stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us, providing the financial support and holistic partnership that makes our work possible. Together we're putting in place the conditions for all children to heal, develop, and thrive.
