Strategic planning helps organizations identify the right mix of resources, talent, programming, policies, and branding to achieve their mission. Our process begins with a SOAR analysis, or Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results (SOAR) Analysis Framework.
Depending on your budget and existing capacity, strategic planning can take three to twelve sessions, which can be spread over days or months. The process is customized to your organizational life cycle, so it’s suitable for new, emerging, or established not-for-profit organizations, including non-profits, community & faith-based organizations, and charitable foundations.
Funding Model Development
Grant Writing & Fundraising
Does your organization have a funding model? Funding models make it easier to plan annual operating and program budgets and fill out grant applications.
Financial support is critical to non-profit success but can be difficult without experienced fund development staff.
Rachel offers grant writing and proposal review for small and large organizations. For organizations that have grant writers, Rachel can develop funding calendars that help your organization identify new funding sources and plan for submissions.
Help is also available to plan and implement traditional fundraising activities that involve event planning, donor appeals, and social media.
