During 2021–2022, the Many Hands Board stewarded a strategic planning process to reaffirm and rearticulate Many Hands’ mission, vision, and values, and to set forth organizational goals, objectives, and strategies designed to ensure that Many Hands continues to thrive as a vibrant and empowering organization for its members and grantees.

Sustaining Impact: 2022–2025 was informed by insights gathered by the Board through six listening sessions with the Emerita Board and Many Hands members, more than 20 interviews with former members, applicants, and grantees, and analysis of membership and grantmaking data. Concurrently, Many Hands supported an independent organizational culture assessment focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion, which included member listening sessions and a member survey conducted in the fall of 2021. The Board is grateful for the input of all those who participated in the development of the plan.
