A Case Statement is one of the most important documents in your non-profit’s fundraising toolkit. It defines your organization’s mission and vision, tells donors why you need funding and the expected outcomes, and offers strong reasons why funders should make gifts to your organization.

Presenter Julie Assel, GPC will guide participants through the essential elements of a strong case statement, strategies for tailoring the case statement to the funders’ missions, and techniques for keeping the language current.

In this on-demand webinar, you will learn:

  • Key case statement components
  • Where it is important for facts to be the most current
  • Where to include story elements to engage the reader
  • How to use a case statement with online applications
