Some not-for-profit organizations have local goals. For example, a city’s arts council may want to provide artistic expression and performance opportunities for its residents. Others have global goals, like Feed the World, which works with developing countries to support self-reliance and sustainable farming. Both types of goals represent opportunities for growth.

- Which growth strategy do you feel is appropriate for the not-for-profit organization you selected to study for your final project? Why?
