Strategic Framework



This Framework describes and establishes the long-term strategic priorities and direction for MACC. It is an adaptive framework for MACC and our network to navigate our constantly changing  world.

Our Strategic Framework is made up of the following key elements:

 Our Vision statement

 Our Mission statement

 Our committment to IDEA

 Our Theory of Change

 Our two Strategic Priorities

To live into its new vision, mission, and commitment to IDEA, MACC will advance two key strategic priorities:

  Infuse its commitment to IDEA throughout MACC’s existing programs and services and strategically develop new programs and services, and
  Expand its efforts to advance systems change and advocacy in order to address the symptoms of systemic racism and how it shows up in the underinvestment of human services nonprofits.
