Impact statement
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to strategically discuss our current operational model and allow us to cover moving labor expenses for approximately (10) donation pick ups with a total estimated fair market in-kind value of $15,000.

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

Our mission is a practical, evidence based, purpose driven model and productively effects positive change towards ending homelessness. We are seeking to merge with a larger organization that has stronger infrastructure and the capabilities to implement this work nationwide. Currently, we have limited resources to sustain this work and there are overarching concerns for determining our future, in a highly competitive non-profit sector. Clearly, demonstrated success, yet, must transition .

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a pitch presentation, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have financials, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Strategic planning discussions will allow our organization to evaluate our options for moving forward. We see stronger possibilities for this mission to have a greater impact with a merger yet need help to identify next steps. Previously, a consulting team provided valuable help for building our current structure, yet, we believe the mission can accomplish far more if assumed by a national organization/association. The founder has served the organization for the past 15years plus.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
