Strategic Plan

Project Details

What We Need
  • Analysis of the Organization’s current needs, long-term goals, programs, competitive standing and resources
  • Recommendations for an appropriate course of action to reach the desired objectives, including allocation of resources and how to measure success
  • Plan outlining the resources and steps required to reach short- and long-term goals
Additional Details

Nimbus Dance is at a transformational moment for our organization. Jersey City's largest arts non-profit, Nimbus has a 14 year history of merging high caliber professional dance with community programming. In Spring 2020, Nimbus moves into a new 15,000 sq ft arts center, including a major partnership with Saint Peter's University.

As our most recent Strategic Plan completes in 2020, we seek to create a new 5 year plan that incorporates the new facility, increased scale, and new possibilities

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have motivated board, a major milestone to plan for, many dreams!, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a large network of constituents, energized staff and talent!, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $12,550 , allowing us to dedicate our modest revenue towards facility fit-out and interior construction costs, as well as ongoing operations of our organization and programs.

The new Nimbus Arts Center will change the future of our organization and the landscape of the arts Jersey City, NJ. It will also challenge us in new ways to manage a larger space, more programs, large partnerships (with St. Peter's University, Hudson County Schools of Technology), Pro Arts Jersey City (visual arts non-profit), and generally a larger footprint. We hope to create a 3-5 year plan which allows to smoothly and productively transition into this enhanced scale of operations.
