Strengthen Our Organization

ACT will be a strong, supportive and healthy organization in which to work, volunteer and participate. We will enhance our resilience as an organization through various initiatives that strengthen and/or clarify our roles and responsibilities, systems, structures, policies, programs, fundraising, and physical infrastructure. Decision-making authority will be informed by those who are closest to the issues. Leaders within our organization will be supported to effectively encourage responsibility, acknowledgement, and creativity. We will remain flexible, adaptive and open to alternative ideas and new approaches.

What We Will do • Increase the effectiveness of our fundraising and capital development programs to ensure financial sustainability. • Continue to support the capacity and capabilities of our staff and volunteers in order to contribute to achieving our mission. • Foster leadership development at all levels of the agency that encourages responsibility, acknowledgement, and creativity. • Improve and make better use of our physical infrastructure.
