Strategy Development

If you have new opportunities ahead, are facing change, or want to be sure your nonprofit is addressing real community needs and challenges in an effective way, it’s probably time to invest in strategy development.

Our strategic consultants will work with both your staff and board to create a financially-informed strategic framework so your organization can be adaptive and prepared to meet your strategic goals.

Whether we engage with you for a one-time strategy retreat, facilitate a strategy refresh, or partner with your nonprofit for a full strategic planning process, our focus is not just on creating a guiding document, but also on providing a practical, financially informed roadmap for how to build capacity and processes to carry out your mission and plan.

From our clients

“There have been so many eye-openers along the way, particularly with finances where I went, ‘Oh yeah, that’s not going to work if we don’t figure this other part out.’ I don’t think I appreciated enough that this good work we’re doing – let’s say in the construction area – can be done in such a way that it can help us financially if we do it in a planful way. I felt so much more resourced at the end of the year.”
