Non-Profit Leadership Summit

Non-Profit Leadership Summit

The Non-Profit Leadership Summit began in 2022 to provide our Community Partners with the tools they need to succeed. Held annually during the fall semester, the Summit focuses on different topics relating to non-profit management, networking, and fundraising. Topics are chosen based on the needs of our Partners as expressed during our annual site visits and other Partner meetings held throughout the year.

Strategic planning is more than just setting goals for your organization. After identifying goals, the strategic plan helps you lay out the steps necessary to accomplish those goals, the resources needed by your organization, and the system used to evaluate progress.

The strategic planning process culminates in a document that serves as your roadmap. While each organization is unique, the essential elements of a strategic plan include:

  • your mission, vision, and value statements.
  • your team.
  • goals, tasks, and timelines needed to achieve those goals.
  • the methods you will use to assess your progress.
  • an analysis of your resources.
  • the budget that will be implemented.
