We are in the process of both transforming our approach to development and navigating the internal change management needed to support this. We’re just putting together a new five-year development plan that your audience may find interesting (and we may have some results to share in April). In short, we’ve realized that our team, our programs, our communications, and our fundraising are inextricably linked. If we want any one part to grow, we must pay attention to the entire ecosystem. Like the gears of an engine, these component parts must work together to drive the company to the future.
