Developing the Plan
Although it might seem otherwise, a plan for sustainability is not just about raising funds; it's also about raising friends. Friend raising is about building relationships with individuals and organizations within the community that can help you meet both long- and short-term goals. Put another way, friend raising is an ongoing public awareness campaign.
Developing a sustainability plan means developing goals, objectives, strategies, and action steps for getting and keeping resources. Read on for several steps to help guide you through the process:
- Decide who will develop the plan.
- Conduct an internal audit.
- Determine and assess resources.
- Set objectives.
- Reach out to supporters.
- Implement the plan.
