Impact statement
This project will save us $12,550 , allowing us to devote more funds toward musical programming needs

Project Details

What We Need
  • Evaluation of current programmatic needs and how a program plan can address them
  • Recommendations for an appropriate course of action to reach the desired objectives, including guidance on how to allocate resources and measure success
  • Plan that outlines the resources and steps required to reach short- and long-term goals
Additional Details

We would like to develop two expressions of a comprehensive update to our three-year strategic plan: One that will be used to meet the requirements of prospective donors and another that would be used to guide the Board of Directors and staff in their more comprehensive operational planning. Ideally we would like a visually appealing strategic plan in Word and/or Power Point with infographic-style executive summary (internal and external expressions).

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a current strategic plan with action/assessment template, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have recently updated mission, vision and values statements, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Having a fresh and dynamic strategic plan will give us a structure on which we can reassess our plans and programs as a 68-year old nonprofit organization. It will also frame our efforts in community outreach, and guide our communications strategies with patrons and supporters.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
