This project is

In Progress

Matched with:

Shelley R.

This project will save us $3,750, allowing us to make sure our programs are mission based and truly addressing the needs of our members..

What We Need

  • Review of existing Mission, Vision and/or Values
  • Analysis of the existing programs and any future plans
  • Strategic consultation surrounding the existing functions and the core need the Organization seeks to address
  • Freshly written Mission, Vision & Values Statements

How This Will Help

SJCA is in the last year of a very poorly conceived strategic plan. As the new Executive Director (1 1/2 years) I have made several changes. The programs no longer fit into the old mission statement and we want to reinvent our gala. Without knowing who we are, it's difficult to conceive anything new. It's time for a shiny new Mission, Vision and Valules!

What We Have In Place

We currently have a mission statement and revised mission statement which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a strategic plan that's running out and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We are only an office of two but have an active board. I hope to engage the marketing committee in this work.
