Whiteboard and What’s Next

Catalyst Model June 2009

Catalyst Model June 2009

This is the result of a whiteboard session we had this morning as we continue defining our strategy. The three green circles represent our areas of interest and investment. We’ve been committed to leadership organizations and reducing poverty in the global village (through market driven economic strategies) from our beginning. It is only in the last few weeks that we’ve adopted an emphasis on the next generation as an official part of our strategy, though it really reflects the formalization of something we were already doing rather than any meaningful shift. As the year progresses we will be working to add greater depth to the Strategic Partnerships we’ve established and ensure that we are offering value beyond funding. We will be accepting Encouragement Grant applications again in September, and our school leadership program is growing significantly. We are also looking forward to our Gather event in October when we’ll bring together a selected group to explore the future of non-profit leadership in Canada.
