Mission, Vision & Values
Impact statement
This project will save us $7,248 , allowing us to better serve the greater Brooklyn community with the resources they need

Project Details

What We Need
  • Review of existing mission, vision and/or values
  • Analysis of the existing programs and any future plans
  • Strategic consultation surrounding the existing functions and the core need the Organization seeks to address
  • Freshly written mission, vision & values statements
Additional Details

Our values are clearly defined - what we need help with is writing a new mission statement! Our current mission statement is five points long and totally unfeasible for what it should be doing.

What We Have In Place
  • All of our current mission and values can be found here: https://impacctbrooklyn.org/about/ but we need to consolidate this into a single sentence, and I'm struggling with the process. I'd like some assistance in this process and a few different drafts to present to my executive director.
How This Will Help

Because we don't have a proper mission statement! As a nonprofit, we need a mission statement that we can all memorize to be successful.

Project Plan

About The Org

Our Mission

IMPACCT Brooklyn embraces a vision in which people strive together to build an equitable, diverse, engaged, and flourishing community in central Brooklyn.

We pursue five major goals:

* to preserve and develop safe and affordable housing, a basic human right;
* to support a vibrant local commerce
* to sustain and develop an economic, racial, and cultural diversity
* to promote knowledge and concerted action
* to foster an ethic that all members of the community contribute to the greater good.

What We Do

IMPACCT Brooklyn is one of Brooklyn's premier community development corporations serving the neighborhoods of Bedford Stuyvesant, Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Downtown Brooklyn, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.

We work hand-in-hand with low- and moderate-income community members and stakeholders to preserve and develop affordable housing, provide quality property management, promote commercial revitalization and strengthen local businesses, create homeownership opportunities, protect tenant rights, combat predatory lending practices and prevent home-loss.
