Will support from American Express be focused on your organization overall or a specific product/service? Please describe.
Since the need is for strategy on our expansion of core programs, the support from American Express will be focused on our overall organization. However, we have identified two specific areas within the overall strategy for the Serve2Gether consulting opportunity.
Have you focused on the above area previously? If so, please explain, including whether you have worked with outside consultants before.
Yes. We have focused on the area before at a very high level. We have begun efforts for chapter expansion strategy by engaging outside pro-bono consultants from NYU Stern MBA Program (Stern Consulting Corps) who are currently assessing our current operations, market research, and analysis for future financial need and gaps. However, they are not focusing on the execution, implementation, and operations of global chapter strategy or on the global-level fundraising strategy to underwrite our cost of scaling.
