In 2019, the AFC hired a national consultant, Sam Avrett of The Fremont Center, to facilitate a formal strategic planning process. Guided by its mission, over a 10-month period, the AFC’s Advisory Committee engaged community stakeholders and worked together to develop the AFC’s new 3-year strategic plan. As this plan is implemented, potential grantees and other key partners are invited to help it take shape through roundtable events and other convenings that will provide opportunities for mutual learning.
