As a strategic planning organization, we fundamentally believe in helping organizations create confidence in their future. Our mission is to transform organizations by transforming the lives of the people within them.
We live to watch our clients grow and thrive through thoughtful strategy, but we also take great pride in ensuring the positive transformation of the communities we are all a part of. Every month, we support a different non-profit organization’s mission to impact the lives of the communities we serve through a financial donation or a donation of our time to help them develop their own strategic plans.
We understand the tremendous human impact these organizations provide and truly respect their work. So, here’s a quick run-down of the organizations OnStrategy (and YOU!) helped support during 2018:
California Fire Foundation: The California Fire Foundation provides critical support to surviving families of fallen firefighters, firefighters, and the communities they serve. Through the SAVE Program, front line firefighters in California provide gift cards, in the amount of $100, to eligible victims of fire or other natural disasters so they may purchase basic necessities such as food, clothing or medicine.
