Sustainability Planning Workbook

The Finance Project (www.financeproject.org) created the Sustainability Planning Workbook to help program developers and community leaders develop a comprehensive plan to sustain a wide range of promising community-based initiatives.

The workbook helps community leaders:

  • Structure an effective planning process.
  • Consider a wide range of fiscal and nonfiscal resources, identify their initiative's strengths and weaknesses, and establish benchmarks.
  • Develop a vision and measure progress toward that vision.
  • Create a strategic financing plan.
  • Build organizational capacity and community support.
  • Develop and write a sustainability plan, and use the plan to generate support, assist in fundraising efforts, and guide future decision-making.

The workbook comes with numerous tools and worksheets to assist users through the planning process. The Sustainability Planning Workbook is available for $125 by contacting the Finance Project at (202) 587-1000 or mroherty@financeproject.org.
