The year 2012 marked the 20th anniversary of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG) and the beginning of our new, three-year strategic plan.
We took this opportunity to assess our efforts over the last four years. We wanted to determine what worked and build on that while also envisioning a future in which the region’s philanthropic community plays an even more integral role. Once again, we called on you, our members, to guide the evolution of this, your organization. Your message was clear: to facilitate the membership as a dynamic network while helping to channel our collective efforts toward improving the metropolitan region. Based on input from members and community leaders, it is our pleasure to present WRAG’s Strategic Framework for 2012 – 2014:
New Frame, Lasting Value, Solid Foundation
Overwhelmingly, members wanted WRAG to work at a regional level and to respect the fluidity of populations and the shared problems and solutions of our region. We will. You wanted us to continue to host the Working Groups, Affinity Groups, and Funding Collaboratives and to make their work even more robust. We will. And you wanted our organization to continue to be solid and you recognized the need to develop a new business model to strengthen WRAG. We will do that, too.
