Strategic Planning

A quality strategic plan is an essential roadmap for maintaining mission; creating purposeful programs and services; and building the right staffing, financial and operational structures to advance measurable impact. Creating a strategic plan that works is a process - not an event. Impact Minnesota works alongside leaders to guide them through a comprehensive yet efficient and rewarding process. Activities are tailored to meet each organization’s size, scope and budget.

Grant Research & Writing

Crafting a powerful grant proposal requires both proficiency and passion.  Identifying solid funding prospects requires an understanding of the philanthropic field, as well as suitable research tools.  Linda has written hundreds of successful grant proposals, securing millions in grant awards.  She’s taught grant research and writing to hundreds of nonprofit professionals - and most importantly, she loves writing grants!  

Program Development & Evaluation

The programs and services your organization offers should be designed to make real and measurable change in the lives of others. With support from Impact Minnesota, organizations can fully realize the outcomes they intend to achieve, have the tools in place to measure those outcomes, and be able articulate their purpose to funders and other key stakeholders.

Specialized Trainings

Impact Minnesota will work with your organization or business to develop customized grants, leadership or short and long-range planning workshops.  We tailor these trainings to meet the specific needs of your employees, customers or boards of directors.
