You wouldn’t paddle without a plan and neither do we. Our three-year strategic plan serves as a guide post, laying out where we want to go and what it will take to get there. BCMT is in a period of growth, focusing on three primary strategies:

Building Relationships

Seeking out and establishing mutually beneficial relationships with partners and potential donors

Building Capacity

Growing our volunteer base, codifying our internal processes, and increasing the impact of our core programs

Securing Sustainable Funding

Pursuing high-level, long-term core funding and expanding our membership by increasing value
