Strategic Planning Advances Your Mission and Transforms Lives
Every successful development program is built on a strong mission and vision and driven by a carefully developed strategic plan. The strategic plan establishes a roadmap for advancing that mission and prioritizes fundraising efforts. Your planning process can build broad support from staff and board and give your donors an understanding of how their gifts will make a difference. At MMS Advancement Associates LLC, we actively engage participants in planning efforts to ensure acceptance of your organization’s decisions. Ultimately, we strengthen your nonprofit organization so you can advance your mission and transform lives. Services include:
- Retreat and workshop facilitation. When you need to update your strategic direction, clarify board and staff roles and responsibilities, outline operational plans, or train volunteers or staff to implement new development programs, turn to MMS Advancement Associates LLC. We offer interactive sessions based on adult learning principles to ensure that your participants leave ready for action.
- Information gathering and analysis. A nonprofit organization must understand its position in the community to build lasting relationships with donors and to transform lives. This information also provides an important foundation for strategic planning. We have extensive experience in conducting community research. Services include focus groups, internal assessments, community needs and benefit assessments, and market surveys.
- Plan development. MMS Advancement Associates LLC believes that the strategic planning process is as important as the plan because it fosters acceptance of your team’s work. We engage your board and/or staff to help develop a clearly written plan that moves your strategic planning process forward with a sense of momentum.
