Governments and Non-Profits
Organizational Development and Planning
Organizations sometimes need outside facilitation of an internal development or planning process. UW-Extension may provide this help to local governments and to non-profits that have a public-serving mission. Strategies available include: assessing organizational effectiveness, strategic planning, operational planning review, and board development.
UW-Extension helps local governments and non-profits design quality citizen participation efforts. Ongoing opportunities for public input – including those leading to citizen ownership of civic efforts – are a hallmark of effective government. Membership-based non-profits need a diversity of committed people to get things done. Facilitation by UW-Extension is designed jointly with leaders on a case-by-case basis, given the unique characteristics of each organization.
