$2000 Grant Competition

Has your nonprofit used strategy & performance management principles to overcome a challenge to achieve your mission? If so, you could win a $2,000 grant from the Ascendant Strategy Management Group.  To compete for the grant, submit a video or podcast of no more than three minutes, or an abstract of 1,500 words (or less) to Mark Cutler (mcutler@ascendantsmg.com) by February 15, 2012.  Your essay, video or podcast should address the following questions:
  • What is your organization's vision/mission?
  • What challenges or barriers to success were you facing?
  • Did you use any strategic planning or performance improvement models or methodologies to overcome the challenge(s)?
  • How did you communicate the plan to your staff, volunteers, and other stakeholders?
  • Did you use any tools or software to help manage the process?
  • Ultimately, did you achieve breakthrough results?
  • And if so, what was the secret of your success?
Winners will be announced at the Mission-Driven Management Summit in Washington, DC in March where Charity Navigator’s own Ken Berger will be presenting.  More information about the grant competition can be found on Ascendant’s blog.
