Strategic Development Planning

“It would be so nice if something made sense for a change” said Alice in Wonderland. Because nonprofit staff have to focus on short-term challenges and activities, there is often little or no time devoted to long-term strategic development planning. Hazen will work with your organization to develop a 3 – 5 year fundraising plan, with an action plan that includes annual, quarterly and monthly benchmarks, goals and objectives.


“Celebrating our 40th Anniversary in 2014, we hired Hazen to craft The Ellington Fund’s strategic plan. Martha not only created a comprehensive and engaging roadmap for the future, she did so in collaboration and concert with all of our key stakeholders – board leadership, senior program staff, and key administration officials. Hazen’s approach to strategic planning was incredibly effective: Martha applied her extensive knowledge and expertise, yet did so in a manner that recognized and honored the culture of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and The Ellington Fund. We are grateful for the careful and thoughtful attention Hazen gave to our strategic planning process.”
