Increasingly donors and funders want to know that a nonprofit organization has a sound plan to use its human, financial, and programmatic resources most effectively. A business plan is a thoughtful, systematic projection of the financial, marketing, personnel, and real costs and effort of a program that helps accomplish a nonprofit's mission. In this session you will learn how to create a business plan and to structure a program plan to enhance your organization's effectiveness.
