Ongoing Strategies

The Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego recently held a forum addressing “Strong Governance in Weak Times”. The various strategies shared are items we should all be reviewing on a continuous basis. They seem like best practice, but sometimes we all need a little nudge:

  • Stick to your organization’s mission and avoid mission drift
  • Increase oversight of finances and investments by convening often
  • Explore new sources of income
  • Review the organization’s strategic plan and budget, making adjustments if needed
  • Create effective donor communications and connections
