Is Your Nonprofit in Need of a Strategic Plan? Our Subsidized Program Can Help.

By Jenna Sedmak - July 28, 2021

PROGRAM CURRENTLY CLOSED - Check back later in the year!

Our consultants here at SME Strategy just wrapped up our summer 2021 Strategic Planning for Nonprofits Program. Working with 5 non-profit organizations across North America, we helped to align their teams around One Destination and create an actionable plan to get there.

As a part of our ongoing corporate giving back initiatives, we will be running the program again for a limited time. We'll be offering significantly subsidized strategic planning facilitation rates to selected organizations.


The application deadline is September 6th, 2021.

See our Terms and Conditions to learn more.

Client Story

One of the organizations we worked with in 2021 as part of the program was Elevate, a private, not-for-profit agency based out of the American state of Wisconsin, working in the areas of substance abuse and mental health.

Soon after the fifth session, after their strategic plan had been completed, I met with Mary Simon, Elevate's Executive Director. Together we reflected on our five strategic planning sessions together, some of the takeaways from the process, what she learned about her team, and more.
