When you start out on a trip, you know your destination. You have maps and routes picked out and a trip itinerary. Do you know where your nonprofit is going? Do you know if you have enough fuel to get there? Will you know when you have arrived?

Strategic planning is all about aligning your people, partnerships, and resources around a plan to achieve your mission. It invites conversation and prioritization on ways to make a difference while ensuring the health and sustainability of your organization. Strategic Planning in Nonprofits (SPiN), created by Washington Nonprofits, was designed to make strategic planning accessible and manageable for you, your board, and your staff.
