Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We have a diverse list of high level goals and very specific objectives, each with metrics to help us measure success. The following is just one example: Our strategic plan focus groups identified a void in our community regarding professional development and leadership skills development for nonprofits in our community. The pandemic also shined a light the fragility of the nonprofit organizations in our community, finding many unprepared to continue operations when fundraising opportunities were unavailable during the shutdown. We wanted to help make them more resilient so they don't have to fear closing their doors during tough times when they are needed most.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

This is one example of the many measurable goals and objectives we aim to achieve by 2026:

The broad overarching goal for this work is Community Leadership: Enhance CFB's role in community leadership to affect meaningful change on the most critical or persistent challenges.

The objective specific to nonprofit support is Embrace CFB's role supporting nonprofit excellence.

Our strategy included establishing, by June 2023, the Broward Center for Nonprofit Excellence, which is now operational. By December 2025, we predicted 500 nonprofits would be served (see impressive results in next section.)

We have a full time director for our Broward Center for Nonprofit Excellence, excellent facilities for training, a robust list of training partner organizations, and excellent in-house financial and marketing support.

In just one year, the Broward Center for Nonprofit Excellence has established itself as a go-to resource for nonprofit professionals, volunteers and supporters to amplify their charitable organizations impact in our community.
