2022 Strategic Planning

A Year of Assessment and Planning

Guided by our 2019-2021 strategic plan, Funders for LGBTQ Issues experienced significant growth in membership, revenues, and capacity. Building on these successes, the organization has designated 2022 as an assessment and planning year. This will be an opportunity for Funders to assess the prior strategic plan in greater depth, and to develop a new plan for the next 3-5 years.

Request for Proposals: Strategic Planning Consultant

Funders for LGBTQ Issues seeks a consultant (or team of consultants) to facilitate and develop our strategic planning process during 2022. We are seeking consultant(s) able to provide the following key services:

  1. facilitate and guide the strategic planning process in both virtual and hybrid virtual/in-person settings, including facilitation of meetings of the strategic planning committee as well as the strategic planning retreat and other meetings with key stakeholders;
  2. conduct research to inform the strategic planning process, with a particular focus on best practices and models for sustainable philanthropic networks and gathering input from key stakeholders (members, LGBTQ funders, potential new funders of LGBTQ issues, LGBTQ movement leaders);
  3. synthesize and capture findings and options in writing throughout the iterative planning process; and
  4. complete the bulk of the writing of the actual strategic plan itself, including revisions based on feedback from the strategic planning committee.

More information about this project as well as instructions to submit a proposal is available in this RFP. Proposals must be submitted by January 26, 2022. We expect to make a decision on a consultant by early March.
