While strategic planning is essential to the work of high-impact nonprofit organizations, a dynamic performance plan can be difficult to build from the inside.

“We hired Aly Sterling Philanthropy to help us discover the shortcomings of our youth program and create a roadmap for the future. Susan was brilliant – she really listened to everyone’s perspectives and kept us on track toward the same goal.

It has energized our youth team and led to many positive results.
