Planning for the Future
Cairo Community Foundation Board members and director met with Mission Matters consultant, Kayla Schnuelle to answer the question: How will the Cairo Community Foundation continue to build on past successes and create opportunities for strengthening the community in the future?
Board members spent a full day evaluating the Foundation’s impact over the course of the last five years. The board really took a close look at what is working, what bold new risks should be explored, and what defines the Cairo Community.
At the end of the day the Foundation Board developed a 3 to 5 year plan with a three pronged approach to become a key tool for successful growth of the Cairo Community.
The strategic plan identified actionable steps for the next eight quarters.
The strategic plan will be made available and used as a guide to measure success and assist the community in reaching its goals.
“Success is 20% skills and 80% strategy. You might know how to succeed, but more importantly, what’s your plan to succeed?” Jim Rohn
“Board member, Craig Welty puts actionable steps on the strategic plan”
