SPiN: Strategic Planning in Nonprofits



A workshop designed to give your board and staff the tools and confidence they need to develop a strong plan that guides your organization towards achieving its mission.

When you start out on a trip, you know your destination. You have maps and routes picked out and a trip itinerary. Do you know where your nonprofit is going? Do you know if you have enough fuel to get there? Will you know when you have arrived? Strategic planning is all about aligning your people, partnerships, and resources around a plan to achieve your mission. It invites conversation and prioritization on ways to make a difference while ensuring the health and sustainability of your organization. Strategic Planning in Nonprofits (SPiN), created by Washington Nonprofits, was designed to make strategic planning accessible and manageable for you, your board, and your staff.  

This workshop is designed to set you up for planning success. You will:

•    learn how to work through the six stages of the strategic planning process.
•    be able to assess the current state of your organization
•    know how to improve your mission statement
•    be able to name one strategic priority for your organization
•    have an action plan of at least two next steps to take towards developing a strategic plan, and have the resources, worksheets, and processes to help you get there!
