Craft a one-page strategic plan

In today’s fast-paced nonprofit landscape, simplicity and clarity are paramount. The ability to condense your organization’s strategic priorities into a concise one-page strategic plan is a valuable skill.

During the course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Understand your organization’s value proposition. Gain insights into the core value your nonprofit brings to its stakeholders, including beneficiaries, donors, and partners, and how it differentiates itself.
  • Identify your target audience. Learn techniques to define and analyze your nonprofit’s highest priority audience, including beneficiaries, donors, and supporters, to better tailor your strategic plan to their specific needs and expectations.
  • Assess inputs and outputs. Explore the resources and activities (inputs) your nonprofit requires to achieve its mission, as well as the tangible outcomes (outputs) it generates through its programs and initiatives.
  • Budget for impact. Develop strategies for resource and funding allocation that align with the strategic priorities, ensuring efficient use of financial resources to achieve your nonprofit’s mission and goals.

This streamlined approach to strategic planning will enable you to communicate your organization’s direction effectively, align your team around common objectives, and make informed budgetary decisions to drive positive change in your nonprofit.

Whether you’re a staffer, board member, or other nonprofit professional, this course will empower you to create a strategic plan that maximizes your nonprofit’s impact and sustainability.
