By doing this we are reacting toconstantly changing conditions, especially in financing.Our goal is to ensure financing from a balanced mixof sources by the end of 2006 consisting of our ownrevenue, subsidies, grants, donations and contributionsfrom both companies and individual donors.In mid 2004, a three day meeting of ICN employeeswas held in Bela nad Sazavou as part of our annualstrategic planning. We adjusted our strategic goalsfor the next five years. The key word for us for thecoming period is “care” – meaning care of the client,care of service suppliers, care of our cooperatingorganizations, care of donors and care of employees.Our board of directors, management and employeesrealize that in order to further develop ICN it is notenough simply to produce quality services. Apartfrom the delivery of services it is also necessaryto provide follow up care to recipients. And that isnot easy to do in the area of information services,consulting and education in the non-profit sector. Inthe business market there are sufficient opportunitiesto pay for necessary services and care. In the nonprofitenvironment the demands and needs of theclients – NGOs – are the same as in the case ofbusinesses. But solvency is not relevant. In this areathere is again some space for enlightened donorswho invest wisely in NGO development and insteadof “giving them fish, teach them how to fish.”ICN also has its teachers and helpers.
