Non-Profits and Charities
Nonprofit Strategic Plan
Strategic Planning for Nonprofits
Whether they are registered charities, endowments, foundations or some other entity, our non-profit clients often ask if they have the same responsibility to create business plans and strategic plans as their profit driven counterparts. Our response is always the same: yes. With funding coming from grants, sponsorships, taxpayers and fundraising, we make the case that charities and other non-profit organizations have a higher duty of care to create and execute clear, measurable plans due to their unique conditions:
- Gaining business plan alignment across a large non-profit organization to a noble but “soft” mission can be elusive. Your non-profit strategic plan must address this.
- Large portions of most non-profit organizations run on volunteers, and we simply can’t count on volunteers to behave in the same way as employees.
- Funding can be incredibly unstable. Most established companies have revenue momentum that non-profits can only dream about. A deliberate long term financial plan is a critical component of every non-profit strategy.
- Non-profits are torn between equally important, yet contradictory priorities. Yes, we have competing priorities in our profit driven enterprises, but nothing compares to the choice between funding research for a cure, and funding care to alleviate suffering.

Non-Profits and Charities
In an environment of shrinking funding and growing needs, non-profit and charitable organizations require a disciplined, effective approach to defining and executing highly prioritized strategies with a focus on innovation, revenue diversification and growing mandates. Our proven NFP and charity strategy and planning consulting will help you continue to do good.
Government and Quasi Governmental Organizations
Strategy creation and implementation in government and quasi governmental organizations is unique and requires a distinct approach. With special mandates, taxpayer funding and multiple stakeholders, strategy implementation often gets mired in delays. We have unique experience finding common ground among diverse agendas for tangible and measurable benefits.
