Where you are headed is not necessarily where you want to go. priorities of an organization OFTEN get lost in the details of day-to-day operations.

Free Range can help your nonprofit explore the deeper questions about its mission, vision, and purpose.

  • Why does this nonprofit exist? You have a Mission statement. So why does it seem no one understands the purpose? Successful organizations move from Why to What to How. Practical steps, such as resilience planning, Board self-evaluations, and visionary Board agendas, can help your organization turn your Mission from a website tagline into a living, tangible purpose.

  • What are our priorities? Not every idea is a must-do program. And not every program is worth keeping. Program evaluation is crucial for a successful nonprofit. Free Range will help you build an evaluative process to assess programs in terms of mission, resources/reward, and fiscal impact. Learn how to create a balanced program menu, and successfully sunset outdated programs.

  • Our committees are dead in the water! Does this sounds familiar: “We have five standing committees, and we can’t keep enough members” “Our committees can’t find meeting times, and they struggle to stay on target”? Many nonprofits operate with 1980s committee structures. Free Range will help your organization build time-distinct, activity-specific, nimble teams that adapt to changing volunteer limitations and react to needs rather than to dusty bylaws provisions.
