IMPACT 2021 – cbm Canada’s 5-year strategy

There are 800 million people in our world caught in the poverty and disability cycle.

Impact 2021 is all about reaching more people in a more transformational way.

In order to achieve our Strategy, our Mission and ultimately our Vision for the world, we believe we need to be wildly successful at 5 things. These 5 strategic themes drive down into our strategic objectives and measures and into every staff member’s personal objectives and work plans.

1. IMPACT LIVES

More people with disabilities living in extreme poverty are able to achieve a significantly improved quality of life.

2. DONOR ENGAGEMENT EXCELLENCE

More passionate, generous, engaged donors who tell others about us, and who feel connected to us and our clients.

3. CHRISTIAN VALUES

Donors and clients are valued as Jesus values them, accepted as equals, able to achieve God-given potential, and see cbm Canada as a vital partner in their faith.

4. OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Revenues are maximized and more lives are transformed in a cost-effective manner.

5. INNOVATIVE EXCELLENCE

New ideas and technology enable us to impact more lives, to save resources, to connect donors and clients, to help children and families in the hardest to reach places.
