Charity Navigator cautions donors, “If a charity can’t explain who it is and what it does, and why it is needed, find one that can. The stakes are too high and too many good organizations exist who know exactly who they are, what they do, and why they are needed.” Your case statement addresses these issues and more. It articulates your organization’s vision and the role that your donors play in realizing it. A written case statement – along with a “message platform” that we develop through a facilitated training with your board and staff – serves as the foundation for all your communications.
