New Year's Resolutions

Category: 

Happy New Year 2012Happy New Year!

The new year offers an opportunity to set new goals and a time to reflect back on successes.

Read Michelle Nunn’s September Change Notes highlighting some of our previous successes and limitations, as well as future goals  for Points of Light.

As we embark on 2012 we have begun to implement our new three year strategic plan with exciting direction for Points of Light. This plan is about people and how we can best support their efforts to make the world a better place. Every day, people of all ages, races, ethnicities and faiths step up to tackle problems in their communities and around the world. In 2010 more than 2.7 million of them did so with and through Points of Light.

Over the next three years, we plan to grow that number significantly and help broaden and deepen the ways in which our constituents create real and lasting change – and in the process define a new kind of volunteerism for the 21st century. A form of volunteering and civic engagement that calls on people to utilize the full range of their assets – their time and talents, their financial resources and their voice as citizens – to improve the world.

We deeply appreciate you joining us on our journey to improve civic health and social conditions and always appreciate your feedback, comments, and support throughout the year.
