Request for Proposal (RFP) - Strategic Planning Services

The Nellie McClung Foundation (NMF) was established through a Private Member's Bill, the Manitoba Legislature created a foundation that would erect a monument for Nellie McClung at the Legislature, serving to educate the public about her achievements. The monument was unveiled in 2010.

Since that time, the Nellie McClung Foundation has evolved and fulfilled its original mandate, to erect the monument, the Board of Directors have chosen to turn the NMF’s attentions to capacity building and engagement.

We are requesting a proposal for services based on the following specifications:

· Review of the current strategic plan, mission, values, vision and mandate

· Profile and situational assessment (assessment of current state and key issues facing the NMF)

· Set strategic priorities for the next 3 years

Desired Strategic Planning Outcomes:

· Revision and update of organizational mission, mandate, confirmation of identity, vision, priorities, goals and outcome measures

· Development of a long-term perspective, and capabilities to enable proactive response to growth opportunities

· Creation of a Community Outreach framework to ensure effective engagement with partners, key stakeholders, and the community.
