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

We have a very basic membership plan for our dance company but need ideas for how to make it more desirable for new people to join, and for how to retain current members.

What We Have In Place
  • We have a membership plan in place, but have very limited finances. We are only 2 years old and so we need member's donations to help and we have a few ways we give back to them, but could use a better system to help as we lay the foundation for our membership program which will hopefully grow over the next few years.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,908 , allowing us to rent a theatre space for a performance!

Our nonprofit relies heavily on donations from individuals to cover operational expenses, so it is important that we have a great membership plan in place to make them feel appreciated and encourage more people to join.

Project Plan

Prep: Distribution of Prep Materials
  • Professional connects with Volunteer Manager to discuss current membership program, development goals, budget, and growth goals

  • Professional surveys existing and potential members through focus groups and/or one-on-one interviews to obtain external data
  • Professional conducts independent market analysis to research the target market, competition, and peer organizations' membership development strategies
Milestone 2: Drafting Document
  • Professional creates a strategy document that includes membership development and engagement recommendations, communications and outreach strategies, events, activities, ongoing services, and programs
  • Volunteer Manager reviews and provides feedback which the Professional incorporates
Milestone 3: Presentation of Final Deliverable

  • Volunteer Manager and Professional conduct a wrap-up meeting and discuss next steps for implementation of this strategy

Our Mission

Glorify Performing Arts exists to present compelling, professional productions to encourage and empower Christians in their walk of faith, inspiring them to step forward boldly to impact the world.

What We Do

We believe that art plays a powerful role in helping us to understand our world and the God who created it, and that's why we perform original, high-quality ballets with compelling stories around themes like injustice, unconditional love, and grace.


Linda was very kind and full of fun stories and ideas! While we weren't able to complete the project, she had lots of thoughts for other strategies we could do.

Membership Strategy Project

Melanie is delightful/. We came to a roadblock because her desire to build memberships through live performances is not practical in Covid. And, there are no sources of seed money to put on the first performance. We brainstormed alternatives, which I encouraged her to take back and think about it at least until her community opens up from the pandemic
