Planning, Audits & Assessments

Do you know where you’re going… and why? If not, you’re likely to end up someplace else – where you may not want to be. Good planning – knowing who you are, where you are, and where you’re going as an organization – is essential for productive fundraising. GSB can set you on the right path toward your destination.

Strategic Ministry Planning to develop the big picture. Vision Planning to address critical issues. Master Site and Facility Audits and Planning to guide capital projects. Financial Stewardship Audits and Planning to enhance your financial stewardship program. Organizational Assessments to make sure you are healthy. These are services GSB is eager to provide you.


Strategic Planning: 3-5 years stretch goals.  Who are we?  What do we do?  What do we value?  Where do we want to go and be in 5 years?

Operational Planning: 2 years or less.  More maintenance in nature as we address a few major problems or issues in the next 12 months.

Diagnostic Assessment Planning: A one-time process to uncover organizational needs, and then select from the range of options available in organizational development which will meet those needs.

Vision Planning: Moving into the future "thinking outside of the box" as we dream new ways to achieve your mission.

Master Site & Facility Audits: An assessment of current facilities and existing site plans in light of program needs and future plans. Recommendations are given to affirm, adjust or redesign facilities, siting of buildings, and land use.

Master Site Planning: Preparation of a comprehensive plan to utilize the land, current buildings and future expansion.

Financial Development Audits & Planning: An analysis of your development program’s capabilities and performance resulting in a detailed plan of action to advance your development efforts for the next three to five years. This is the first step in creating a new development program or in bringing new life to an existing program.

Organizational Assessments: Concise evaluation of your organization’s health including staff performance and capabilities, board governance, conflict resolution, team building and communication.
