Nonprofit 411: Strategic Planning…Now?


When COVID-19 entered our lives, many of us reacted with panic and uncertainty. Immediately, nonprofit organizations were faced with some big questions: How will this shift from the business-as-usual impact our clients, our employees, our donors? Will we still be able to deliver quality programs and services? How will this impact our bottom line? All of these are legitimate questions nonprofits are asking themselves, and the answers have resulted in a significant shift in the way many organizations are now operating and delivering services.
