Aligning Mission and Strategy: Not-for-Profit Governance and Assurance

Description

Not-for-profits (NFPs) vary significantly in their purpose, size, and complexity, but they all have one thing in common: they exist to fulfill a societal need or accomplish a public benefit. Strategic planning helps set priorities, allocate resources, and align staff and volunteers’ efforts to effectively accomplish the NFP’s mission. Successful NFPs have the ability to execute a clear strategy, monitor progress and evaluate results.
