Strategic Planning and The Development Office
Or, how you can use your dead plan, your awesome plan, your old plan or your new plan to help you raise money.
Yesterday I presented this session at VFRI, the premier conference for Fundraisers in Virginia. I promised the participants that I would recap the presentation and provide access to the links. All the links I mentioned in the class can be found below.
1. Assess your situation. What does your plan look like? New, old, outdated?
2. Make a power and relationship map for your organization. Who makes decisions, where can you align yourself?
3. Think creatively about how you can involve donors in your plan process or your plan implementation.
4.Make your plan beautiful and sell it to your donors.
