Strategic plan: Letter from the CEO

By Suzii Paynter March


From Strategic Plan:

Beginning in the opening weeks of 2022, Prosper Waco engaged in a strategic

planning endeavor to determine the goals, priorities, and future of Prosper Waco.

I am so proud of the outcomes and proud of our Board of Directors and the

strategic planning process. Our staff and our 20 board members worked to review,

improve, and expand our commitment to the mission to measurably improve life for

all Wacoans.


A plan is always a beginning. One indicator of effectiveness is the level of

commitment of dedicated people to intentional listening and dialogue. Over several

months, the staff and board of Prosper Waco considered what needs were evident

and how measurable improvement might be accomplished. This plan outlines steps

towards both “the what” of our goals and “the how” of our processes.


The mission of Prosper Waco is ambitious and calls for strength and effort over

time. We are grateful to our founders and to the community of support that

surrounds us. The strategic plan is necessarily aspirational; it is grounded in the

collective impact process and it is tailored for the Greater Waco region. What results

is a living document that will help us move individually and collectively towards

measurable change in our community.


We invite you to be a part of effectiveness and a greater Waco for a greater number

of people as we are Prosper Waco at our best.
