Training Overview

Strategic planning should be a community effort, not a leadership activity.

As nonprofits emerge from the pandemic, they need new strategic plans and additional engagement with community members. Situations, needs, goals, and funding have all changed. Now is the time to create your plan for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.

While writing a strategic plan in your office or at a board meeting is tempting, strategic planning ideally should be a community effort, not a leadership activity. It is possible to include donors, board members, staff, partners, and your community in strategic planning without overcomplicating and drawing out the whole process.
