Facilitated Strategy Session
Impact statement
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to fund more life-saving cancer research projects.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional Details

We are finalizing our strategic plan and would love some guidance/coaching on the strategies/objectives/tactics, specifically in terms of wording and how our report is organized. Most of the strategic work is complete, but we are open to feedback and guidance in order to package this report for the Senior Leadership Team and Board of Directors. Presentations to these groups are scheduled for the end of April.

What We Have In Place
  • We have the strategies, long-term objectives, goals and tactics. The report is underway with draft delivery for peer review by March 31.
How This Will Help

This project is to enhance engagement over the next five years of young professionals as a valued volunteer and donor base. We want to be the cancer nonprofit of choice for young professionals and engage the next generations who will be the generations to end cancer.
