Impact statement
This project will save us $3,808 , allowing us to continue to provide the important cultural and environmental education programs we offer to students and the community while we are raising money for the capital campaign.

Project Details

What We Need
  • A document with detailed feedback and edits that ensures an Organization's business plan clearly defines its mission and approach, finance and operating structure, and tracks to key performance indicators.
Additional Details

Our business plan is for a new center which will be called Wakan Tipi Center. This will be a Dakota Cultural and Environmental Interpretive Center on the East Side of St Paul honoring Wakan Tipi, a Dakota Sacred Site, which means Dwelling Place of the Sacred. Our business plan objectives are two fold; to help attract donors and to provide our organizational direction for our first year of operations.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the first three sections and capital and operation budgets, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a board member who will be available as well as our ED, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We are currently running a capital campaign to construct a Dakota cultural and environmental interpretive center on the East Side of St Paul. This will be a one of a kind educational center in the Twin Cities. Having a solid, well defined business plan will help attract donors to the project and reflect the important nature of the project, as well as the strength and sustainability of the work.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
