Impact statement
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to distribute information to an additional 4000 contacts and increase our donor base.

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.
Additional Details

We have several compelling client case studies that have been written from a more clinical or social work perspective that need to reworked so we can use them for our annual appeal, website and other materials.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Drafts of the client stories already written, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have program staff that can provide additional details., and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our mission is to help the elderly and disabled remain independent, without the need to enter institutional care. Telling our funders, donors and other supporters how we have been able to make that happen for thousands of individuals is something we struggle at. Final client stories will be used heavily in our annual fundraising which will enable us to surpass our previous year's fundraising total of $145K
