Stakeholder-Engagement Toolkit

The stakeholder engagement toolkitYour key stakeholders—ranging from clients and staff to board members, funders, and community partners—experience your organization from different vantage points. As such, their input and insight can help inform your nonprofit's strategic planning. Their combined perspectives will round out the picture for your strategic plan, filling in blind spots and offering answers to open questions. And stakeholder engagement improves your plan by incorporating diverse perspectives and ideas to help shape your organization's future. 

To help you build a plan for engaging stakeholders, Bridgespan has developed this Stakeholder-Engagement Toolkit. The tool walks you through the three components of a stakeholder-engagement plan (who and why, how, and when) and helps you steer clear of mistakes nonprofits commonly make in engaging their stakeholders.
