Project Details

What We Need
  • A Membership Strategy document of up to 10 pages, including analysis of the Organization’s current membership program, step-by-step guide to a new and improved program, growth goals and creative outreach strategies
Additional Details

In addition to the above, I would like to include a plan for evaluating and tracking progress.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a donor base/established membership program., which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a leadership team and board who are strongly committed, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,908 , allowing us to empower and equip more farmers and gardeners so that our community has more access to healthy-local food.

With this strategy we will be able to build stronger and sustained relationships which will ultimately increase giving. The strategy will also help put key steps and metrics in place to successfully reach our goal.
