Stratford Historical Society’s 2024 Strategic Planning Process
Stratford Historical Society is launching a strategic planning project that will guide the organization’s activity and engagement as it enters its next hundred years. This capacity grant funds a consultant who will create a three-year strategic plan through meetings, research, and a write-up.
“CT Humanities capacity grants help Connecticut organizations that bring humanities to the public to think strategically, better understand their audiences, assets, and operations, and plan for the future,” said Dr. Jason R. Mancini, executive director of Connecticut Humanities. “During our peer-reviewed grants selection process, our volunteer committee saw a higher number of requests for capacity funding, and we are pleased that these grants will strengthen not just the organization but the communities they serve.”
