Business & Strategic Planning

The business of nonprofits is always changing. Your strategic plan is, and always will be, a work in progress—or, as Advance Learning Center ED Caroline Fender learned in our Momentum program, "It's not: make one and put it on a shelf somewhere."

We're here to tackle that work with you, providing better ways to understand your beneficiaries (as in the Metro Atlanta Veterans Services Report), new approaches to revenue-generating social enterprise (our profile of Alan Proctor's Linking Mission to Money®), big-picture sector analysis (The Economic Impact of Georgia's Nonprofit Sector), and more.

Check here for information on long-range planning, planning for specific types of services and processes, and the roles involved in that planning.
