Description: A business plan is an important strategic tool for any organization. Even a brief prevention business plan will push you to do research, crystallize your purpose, and polish your messaging. Without a business plan, you will have a harder time obtaining grants, attracting donors, obtaining qualified board members, and keeping your organization on track. Understanding tried and true tips for building an effective business plan will help your organization establish a roadmap for outlining your goals and objectives, ensure you are cognizant of your competition (yes, nonprofit organizations have competition!), and guarantee that you are staying relevant and ahead of the curve.
