Strategic planning for a growing non-profit
CEA worked closely with CSF’s leadership to evaluate the needs, challenges, and opportunities for the organization and help them make important decisions about key elements of the organization’s next five years of growth, including: funding model, program and geographic expansion, organizational structure, board structure, executive leadership, and communications. CEA developed expansion options and explored alternative business models and funding structures as well as the key steps, barriers, and risks inherent in each option. CEA led key staff through a day–long workshop to discuss key issues, and produced two final strategy plans, one to be used internally and one to be shared with funders and partners.
