Your case for support is a core document that sums up why your organisation deserves to be funded. With all organisations affected by coronavirus in some way, now is a great time to review your case for support. This interactive workshop will help you articulate your purpose and the (possibly new or exacerbated) social issues that you’re tackling. If you find yourself reinventing the wheel and writing similar but different information for funding proposals over and over again, this is the workshop for you.
This is a practical workshop with exercises to help you start drafting your case for support toolkit. The toolkit approach differs from a traditional two-page case for support. It contains all the information that you need to write detailed, high value funding applications and proposals. 


This practical session will help you:

  • articulate your purpose – your ‘why’ – and the difference that you make
  • consider what your elevator pitch could be (to get you to that two-pager)
  • start putting together a detailed toolkit, comprising a consistent and compelling narrative for your organisation.


This is for anyone looking to reassess their case for support in light of the current crisis and of particular interest to high value fundraisers seeking a way to convey their organisation's purpose, services and impact in a consistent and compelling way,

I have start putting together a detailed toolkit, comprising a consistent and compelling narrative for my organisation

My toolkit is well underway, but it now needs to be turned into a narrative. Now I need to take the plunge and apply for something.
