NCCF’s first Affiliate Impact Committee was created four years ago to help guide the strategic direction of NCCF’s affiliates across the state.
Representing affiliate leadership and NCCF staff, the committee was instrumental in developing a plan called the “Blueprint for Success” to help advisory boards focus their work, according to Sally Migliore, director of community leadership. “The Blueprint set out a process that local advisory boards are currently using based on their affiliates’ and local communities’ needs and opportunities,” she said. “It was important work and has launched our affiliates on a journey to enhance their effectiveness in their communities.”
The Blueprint has helped local advisory boards to focus on four key areas: leveraging grantmaking; developing strong boards reflective of the local communities we serve; inspiring local philanthropy to grow affiliate assets and a “family of funds;” and positioning affiliate leadership as catalysts to address community needs.
After four years of hard work, the time has come to name a new committee. The newly constituted Affiliate Impact Committee's goals are to help develop criteria to assess the effectiveness of the Affiliate Blueprint for Success thus far and recommend further training and resources to support affiliates’ success.
