Mission-Driven Strategies for Resilience and Reinvention in Times of Crisis
For Foundations and Their Grantee Partners
Foundations are dealing with unprecedented circumstances — economically, socially, culturally, and financially. The current pandemic has hastened the calls for foundations to move rapidly and to respond to immediate needs of their grantees while re-evaluating how to be of greatest use.
How does a foundation assess its strategies and create new paradigms to fulfill its mission and affect change?
Davidoff developed its Mission-Driven approach out of our own dissatisfaction with traditional planning processes. In response to what we were observing, we designed a methodology that:
- Brings an elevated level of critical thinking to our foundation and nonprofit clients
- Challenges organizational assumptions and norms that typically go unquestioned, and uncovering tangible and intangible assets
- Leverages opportunities for growth, transformation, and greater organizational effectiveness
