Our roadmap to success

The key components of a successful nonprofit are a strong Case for Support coupled with a detailed Strategic Plan.  For the past 20 years, we have diligently updated both of these documents to reflect our mission and purpose in our Case for Support and the strategies and tactics we plan to employ to fulfill our mission as outlined in our Strategic Plan.  With the help and generosity of thousands of people, we pursue our vision and ensure that we measure our success with mission impact, efficiency and effectiveness.  Our guiding precedent is our Vision 2030 and Beyond Strategic Plan with detailed strategy map and outline.  While this plan was first unveiled at the 2019 meeting, the Board adopted formally adopted the plan at its March 2020 Board Meeting. The five main areas of the plan include:

  • Mission Expansion
  • Mission Brand
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Operational Excellence
  • Program Excellence

A snapshot of the strategic initiatives is available here and plans are in support of both 1.0 Mission Expansion and 2.0 Mission Brand.  View our FPS Vision 2030 Strategic Plan with history, impact and outcomes. One of the highlights of this plan is the potential for a dedicated FPS respite center.  Read more about this center in the Statement of Intent or view our Woodloch Project Presentation. For Pete’s Sake published an abstract based on the outcomes from the Woodloch Respite model. You can view the publication here. Along with a five year blind study on the benefits of respite, FPS has also collected extensive data on those recent respites that have taken place the past 18 months at the Woodloch destination. View these results here to learn how respite improves the continuum of care for patients, caregivers and their families.

We invite you be part of the change in continuum of care for families with the FPS respite program!   To learn more, please call our Founder/CEO Marci at 21.5.416.7489 or email marci@takeabreakfromcancer.org.  Join us in changing lives forever!
