Fundraising Strengths Your Competition Can't Touch Edit Title
Experienced nonprofit professionals appreciate the value of their mission statement, because the mission statement itself is often what persuades donors and grant makers to invest in their agencies. But the agency’s mission may not always be as clear as it should. Your fundraising staff may believe that funders are attracted to your agency for reasons other than the mission; or perhaps the mission is too broad or narrow to attract all the funders you need and want. For fundraising to be truly effective, everyone on the fundraising team, be they staff, board or volunteers, must understand why your nonprofit is worthy of being funded in the first place.
