Strategic Planning for Nonprofits


Nonprofit organizations are vital to the quality of life we all enjoy in this country. The role strategic planning and management processes play are essential to nonprofits in many ways. Boards, staff, volunteers, funders and other stakeholders alike all depend on strategic planning processes to illuminate the path forward, align resources and document outcomes.

Purpose of the ASP Nonprofit Community of Practice

The ASP Nonprofit Community of Practice is dedicated to learning, sharing and collaborating to insure the highest quality strategic planning and management services are provided to help these organizations focus, make better decisions and fulfill their vital missions. 


NPCE First Mondays:


The ASP Nonprofit Center for Excellence invites you to join us for First Mondays, our monthly community conversations on topics relevant to strategic plan development, implementation and management. Notes from each session will be shared with participants and a recording will be posted to the ASP YouTube channel.



The ASP Nonprofit Community of Practice Annotated Bibliography


The Community of Practice has begun preparing an annotated bibliography of resources for Nonprofit Strategy and Strategic Planning.
Our annotated bibliography or "wiki" is a work in progress, and you are welcome to read existing resources and annotations and add your own favorites. Resources in red have yet to be annotated, so feel free to offer your short summaries.
