Where you are headed is not necessarily where you want to go. Sometimes the priorities of an organization 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? Your Board has hammered out your Mission statement and grilled Board members on their elevator speeches. So why does the question of meaning still haunt your organization? Because just as people are human beings and not human doings, successful Boards are driven by meaning and identity. Free Range will help your Board focus on finding their identity.
- What are our priorities? Not every idea is a must-do program. And not every program is worth keeping. Program evaluation is a crucial piece of a successful nonprofit. Free Range will help you build an evaluative process to assess programs in terms of mission, vision, and fiscal impact. You will learn how to balance your programs in terms of resources, and successfully sunset outdated programs.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 still operate with 1980s committee structures. Free Range will help your organization build time-distinct, activity-specific, nimble teams that will keep volunteers engaged and react to needs rather than old bylaws provisions.
