Nonprofit Strategic Planning

As a nonprofit leader, you have vision for the impact your organization can have. Does your entire organization share that vision? Do they understand it? Does everyone use it as a guide for their day-to-day work?

Most nonprofits either take a top-down approach to strategic planning or they don't prioritize it at all. After all, why invest the time and effort for something that's going to collect dust on the shelf?

It's time to reclaim the nonprofit strategic planning process.

Co-creation creates alignment. Alignment creates impact.

People have energy towards what they get to create.

Our strategic planning process facilitates engagement at all levels of your organization.

The result? Buy-in. Engagement. Vision. Energy. Things that top-down, behind-closed-doors, consultant-driven planning processes can never achieve.

Energize where you're stuck.

We developed The Impact Cycle™ to demonstrate what drives nonprofit success. Every part of the cycle needs to be properly resourced, otherwise they all decline.


Inclusive and collaborative leadership empowers every person in your organization to align around a shared vision.


Your day-to-day activities determine how far and how fast you move towards your mission and the impact you desire.


Measuring the outcomes and outputs of your efforts educate strategic decisions on where to allocate time and finances.


Creative fundraising and revenue generation expand your ability to properly resource the programs you're passionate about.


The clarity with which you share your impact with the world drives buy-in from your team and your financial supporters alike.

“I was walking home from work last night and I marveled at how wonderful the Thrive Impact Strategic Planning Process was for our Board and Staff. The time we spent with the Thrive Team was a game changer!“

Kim Cox

The Father McKenna Center
“THRIVE IMPACT did an amazing job facilitating our strategic planning process. There was a lot of new data, historical perspectives and personality nuances that could have easily derailed us from achieving our goals. Their credibility, knowledge, and personalities were the reasons why we were able to get the clarity we needed!”

Lissa Goldenstein

Board Chair
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association
