National VOAD Strategic Plan
In the fall of 2012, the National VOAD Board of Directors laid out a process to develop a three-year Strategic Plan for the period of 2014-2016. A critical part of that process was to obtain input from you – our Members, Partners, and stakeholders in the VOAD movement.

Summary of the Scan Findings

Help Where It Is Needed Most
It is better to send cash donations instead of having to transport and store items at great expense. Quite often, survivors do not need or can’t use goods that are donated by generous fellow citizens. Organizations that receive unsolicited donations have to take time to catalogue and store such materials, which takes valuable time away from working on urgent needs.
