Resiliency Planning Cohorts: Creating a Roadmap for the Next 24 Months
As we overcome the shock of the COVID-19 crisis, nonprofits must chart a roadmap that addresses not only their reentry, but strategies for sustaining the organization and facing deepening community challenges.
According to our nonprofit COVID-19 impact survey results, 90% of nonprofits have experienced a decline in revenue, 30% have no more than 6 months of viability, and 50% plan to reduce the scope or coverage of their services over the next 12 months.
Persevering in this challenging environment means developing resiliency – the ability to absorb a shock and come out better on the other end. That requires concerted planning and an organization-wide effort to transform, adapt, and reconsider what your organization does.
To help you in this work, GCN's Nonprofit Consulting Group has developed a process for creating Resiliency Roadmaps called RISE. (Click the image for a detailed explanation.)
We will be facilitating this process using a cohort model in order to keep the cost low and the process efficient. We expect this process will take six weeks, centered around four online sessions to introduce the tools and create the framework for your Roadmap. Two individual consulting sessions are included to review and facilitate decisions for your organization.
This is not a class, but a facilitated process for creating an organization-wide Roadmap for achieving resiliency for your organization. Rolling session dates begin July 15th; organizations should expect to spend no more than 3-5 hours per week to complete the process.
