Program Strategy & Goals
Impact statement
This project will save us $12,550 , allowing us to spend that money on more staff. We are often short staffed

Project Details

What We Need
  • Evaluation of current programmatic needs and how a program plan can address them
  • Recommendations for an appropriate course of action to reach the desired objectives, including guidance on how to allocate resources and measure success
  • Plan that outlines the resources and steps required to reach short- and long-term goals
Additional Details

Teach us how to move from a big direct service role into more of a consulting role.
We need some direction on other diversified funding streams
How to create a donor list (We do not have many private donors)

What We Have In Place
  • I currently have the entire business plan in my head (Not on paper), which I know is difficult. With the right person, I could be debriefed and it could make a successful business plan.
How This Will Help

This is so important because we are growing and succeeding so fast. I want to be able to offer our program to many other school districts (who have asked) so they can improve their wellness plans too. Without a plan, I am not confident to move forward.
