          Strategic Plan

          Ensuring Effective Communications & Engagement

          Goal #1

          Increase MSB’s visibility and presence in the larger community in order to ensure that we are able to attract more long-term supporters, donors and volunteers.

          Goal #2

          Develop strategic partnerships with key community organizations in order to ensure maximum reach and efficacy.

          Goal #3

          Continue to expand programs and partnerships with schools to ensure that we are reaching our target market.

          Goal #4

          Develop and implement communications, marketing and evaluation efforts to expand awareness and track MSB’s community impact.

          Building Administrative & Operations Support

          Goal #1

          Develop policies and procedures to ensure the efficient operations of the staff, board and overall organization.

          Goal #2

          Establish a budget and financial management system that allows MSB’s board and staff to be proactive in ensuring the short- and long-term success of the organization.

          Securing Funding & Financial Resources

          Goal #1

          Focus fundraising efforts on key constituencies that we believe are likely to support MSB, most notably: educators; arts supporters; foundations active in the areas of education, youth development, etc; and individuals who have connections to the Founder and/or board members.
