Start your NGO: ORGANIZE
As soon as you have your Board of Directors ready and confirmed, organize a meeting together.
STEP 5. Write your Vision statement.
How do you see this NGO after one year, three years, or eight years? What are your beliefs or core values as a team?
STEP 6. Write your Mission statement.
How will you achieve your vision of the NGO? (The purpose of the NGO is usually the organization’s standard mission statement.) Keep the statements short and easy to understand.
Tip: Let each Director/member say each statement in his or her own words.
STEP 7. Decide on your goals as an NGO.
What do you want to accomplish in the next 3, 6, or 12 months? What results do you intend to see in a specific period of time? These results need to be specific, and measurable.
STEP 8. Choose a name.
The SEC Memorandum Circular No. 8-2006 says that the corporate name must include the word Foundation. *
