Case Statements

A strong, memorable case statement provides the rationale for funders, individual donors, volunteers and the community to support your nonprofit, a particular program or campaign. A case statement should speak to the minds and hearts of your supporters, balancing fact and emotion so individuals can connect with and support your mission.

A well written case statement can be used both internally and externally. Internally, your case statement clarifies your strategic approach to your mission and guides your grant program and other fundraising efforts. Externally, it engages supporters and potential donors.

We develop your case statement from both a fundraising and marketing communications perspective. It is written from the donor’s viewpoint, defining why your organization is worthy of support based on whom you help and how. We carefully craft your case statement, creating a message that builds your brand among key constituencies. These words can and should be used consistently throughout your marketing and fundraising efforts.

Your case statement is developed in partnership with you, beginning with a review of your marketing materials and an in-depth discovery meeting during which we ask probing questions about your vision, mission, programs and future goals. Once the case statement is drafted, we review it with you and incorporate your requested revisions.
