“We are thrilled to share the new Strategic Plan with all of our stakeholders, as we continue to expand access and provide opportunities for the children and families in our neighborhood. I want to thank everyone who worked so diligently to chart a path for the future of our organization and thoughtfully consider how we further our impact."

“The new Strategic Plan allows our donors to clearly understand how their generosity translates into the success of our students and organization. We believe that with these goals in front of us, the churches, companies, and individuals who have walked alongside us for so long will be excited to further their support!”

  • Utilize staff mentorships and partnerships to increase high quality ongoing education and training to develop staff and volunteers

Goal Two:
Ensure Financial Growth & Stability

  • Review and evaluate fund development and communication processes to use those results to develop the fundraising plan

  • Diversify giving and build a robust communications plan with individual and corporate donors, church and governmental relationships, grants, legacy and planned giving, campaigns and appeals, board engagement, and fundraising events
