Nonprofits Can Receive Free Planning Services

Request for Proposals for Strategic Planning Consultation

The Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations at Case Western Reserve University will again offer area nonprofit organizations assistance in designing strategic planning visions.

Since the Mandel Center began this program in the nonprofit community, more than 90 organizations have been served with over $2 million in estimated contributed costs.

Nonprofit management graduate student teams work under the supervision of Professor John Yankey, Ph.D., a leading national expert in strategic management issues. Teams of students are assigned to work with selected organizations from September 2006 through April 2007.

In order to be considered, nonprofit organizations must attend one of two pre-submittal informational sessions on July 18 or July 25.

If interested in pursing the help of the Mandel Center, the nonprofit organization must submit a notice of intent proposal by August 7, with the proposal deadline set for August 21.

The only cost for the assistance from the Mandel Center is a small fee to cover nominal expenses.

To learn more about these strategic planning consultations and view the full Request for Proposals, visit the Mandel Center's web site on the home page under "News and Events" at http://www.case.edu/mandelcenter.

The Mandel Center is committed to building exceptional leadership skills in the nonprofit community. For further information on obtaining a certificate or masters degree in nonprofit management, please go to http://www.case.edu/mandelcenter/grad/
