Impact statement
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to write powerful and compelling funding bids.

Project Details

What We Need
  • A compelling narrative, or set of stories
  • Persuasive copy that can be used in appeals to donors, annual reports, grant applications, and media relations
  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have short cases studies and examples of work, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a description of the challenge we seek to address, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We sometimes find it difficult explaining to funders the challenge we seek to address and the huge impact we have with beneficiaries. We need to be able to tell our story, and tell it well!
