Webinar: How to Map Your Programs to Your Strategy

If you’ve found yourself facing decisions about which programs to grow, improve, scale back, or even exit altogether, a program strategy map can give you a fresh perspective.

Program strategy mapping helps you evaluate your programs and visualize their impact and financial sustainability relative to one another. With this insight, you and your team can make important decisions about your nonprofit’s work.

Join us on Thursday, August 5, at 10 a.m. PT; 1 p.m. ET for this complimentary webinar to:
  • Learn more about the program strategy mapping tool and how to use it in your organization
  • Hear from leaders who have used the program strategy mapping tool, and learn how it helped them make better decisions about their programs
