HOW TO CREATE A CASE STATEMENT FOR FUNDING: TIPS TO WRITE & FIND GRANTS & BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH FUNDERS
12:00 pm PT - 1:15 pm PT
3:00 pm ET - 4:15 pm ET
A fully developed case statement is crucial to a grant proposal, capital campaign, end-of-year campaign, or one-on-one donor solicitation. A case statement illustrates the work of a nonprofit. The core components of a case statement should serve as an inspiration to funders whether during a 1:1 solicitation or a grant application. Staff, board members, and volunteers can use information from a case statement to convey important information to the community, funders, foundations, and key stakeholders. Do you have an old case statement that needs to up be updated? Or have never created a case statement that makes grant writing a challenge? Join us for this workshop to review the core components of a case statement using a template provided and get started writing, updating, or revising your organization's case statement.
After writing, updating or revising your case statement comes the need for to find grants that align with your organization's mission and programs. We will cover different databases you can use to find grants and how you can also utilize your board members to help you build relationships with foundations. There will be opportunities for feedback, development, and writing in this workshop!
