Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) represent an important link in the process of local development. They influence local community activation and constitute the natural tool of endogenous developmental projects implementation. Development strategies of these organizations function as a signpost indicating the most important tasks to be carried out in the years to come. The purpose of this study is to determine and characterize the stages, elements of Non Governmental Organizations’ development strategies creation with particular emphasis on SWOT analysis and the key strategic goals based on the example of selected organizations from Dzierżoniów and Złotoryja districts. The analysis of 10 NGOs was prepared based on the consultancy process conducted in the period 2012-2014. In this process the following research methods were applied: subject literature query and undisguised observation. Strategic workshops and study visits (in the seats of particular NGOs) were taken under consideration. Moreover, the study also presents the list of thematic blocks carried out for NGOs.
