At the heart of your nonprofit organization is a unique, driving story that can transform your fund development, board recruitment, talent retention, volunteer management, and relationship to the community. Do you know your story and how to communicate it well at all levels, both internally and externally?

Whether embarking on a capital campaign or raising funds for your annual campaign, EVERY nonprofit should have a case for support (CFS).  Your Case For Support provides your organization’s mission and history. It communicates the community need and how your organization responds to those needs. And it presents the vision for your future and how the gifts of current and prospective donors create hope for the future.  

The CFS is the foundation of all your donor focused communications and is a valuable tool not only for anyone who is helping raise money for your organization, but also for any current or prospective donors as well.

Session Goals 

This two hour virtual workshop is designed to help participants understand the CFS’s role in telling your organization’s story and why it is essential for successful fundraising.  

Goals will include the following:

  • Key elements in a CFS
  • Process for writing the CFS
  • Length of the CFS
  • Difference between the “internal” and “external” CFS

Designed for

The session will provide beginner communication and fundraising staff guidelines for producing a strong CFS and as a refresher for more seasoned staff charged with developing a CFS.
