Nonprofit Corner: Development Plans should BE your Business Plans

Understanding the inner workings of a non-profit organization is something that requires a true expert. Between the Board of Directors, internal budgets, gala planning and the end-of-year ask, having a solidified, organized plan behind your yearly process is the key to your non-profit’s monetary success.

A development plan outlines the who’s, what’s, where’s and when’s of money flow for the organization.  If written and created correctly, development plans can be used as guide books for board members, volunteers and internal staff who are helping fundraise. In other words, your development plan should be a step-by-step process for you to get your brand, message and mission out into the community, resulting in necessary operational funds.

Straying from the development plan could mean the difference between a major donor for your next fiscal year and a lost sponsor. Making sure everyone involved in the organization is in support of your development plan helps that plan be your committed business plan.

Our experience with non-profits dates back to the beginnings of Mantooth. We work with several northern Colorado non-profit organizations each year. This has allowed us to establish mutually beneficial relationships throughout the community. A few of our staff members are even active board members, themselves!

Let the Mantooth team be the brains behind your development plan.
