Nonprofit 411: Strategic Planning…Now?


When COVID-19 entered our lives, many of us reacted with panic and uncertainty.

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.
