You started your nonprofit because you want to help people. It’s easy to forget to plan for the future when you’re laser-focused on starting up or making ends meet while trying to make a change. Focusing only on doing good lets you personally help people now. Implementing a long-term organizational strategy helps you reach more people while taking care of your own. So here’s what you need for a nonprofit strategic plan, and where to get help in making yours great.

Developing Your Nonprofit Strategy

The first step is to have a professional nonprofit strategy consulting session. When you work with someone who knows what they’re doing, like the experts at BryteBridge Nonprofit Solutions, you can feel confident that you have the best possible plan of action moving forward to garner the most success.

Creating a strategy from scratch begins with knowing exactly what you want. More money in donations? More chapters? More volunteers? How much or how many?

Take your ultimate goal, and break it down into steps. Those steps are what becomes your nonprofit strategy. While you can try to do this on your own, it helps to have a professional who knows what the most effective steps are so you don’t waste your time on ones that aren’t as helpful as you think.

What A Nonprofit Strategic Plan Involves

The action plan is different for every nonprofit as each one needs to expand different areas for increased longevity. Nonprofit strategy consulting can help you figure out what’s a priority for yours. However, there are a few common things that most plans include.

  • Branding. You may not be selling a traditional “product,” but when people are clear on what your organization is about, they’ll feel more comfortable donating time or money. This can include adjusting your organization’s marketing materials, online voice, and updating your website.
  • Fundraising. There are so many different sources of funds for nonprofits, like grants and corporate sponsorships in addition to traditional donations. A good nonprofit strategic plan will help you get the most out of all of them.
  • General nonprofit operations. Paperwork can feel like the worst part of running a nonprofit, even when you know it’s necessary. But with an outside eye and a little organization, you can make it all easier and less intimidating so your bookkeeping and payroll services along with your annual Form 990 are a snap.
