  • Making the Pitch: Writing an Effective Statement of Need | Imagine Canada
    great story Take time to figure out the story you re telling Susan suggests sitting down to answer a few key questions before you begin writing your statement of need Why does your organization exist What real difference does it make What would be missing from the world if your organization ceased to exist Don t worry about how clear or professional your answers are but write out the answers to these questions just for yourself Balance Passion with Pragmatism In building your case it may be tempting to paint a picture of dire despair to emphasize the importance of your cause Susan cautions against overly emotive or exaggerated appeals Many organizations believe that they have to frame their work in terms of crisis and superlatives i e we re the best or this situation is the most the worst etc Some work fits that category but if yours doesn t that doesn t negate the need Kate echoes this advice by cautioning us to Demonstrate a sense of urgency but at all costs avoid suggesting that without their support the world will end Make it Count If the need that your organization will address is not in any way linked to the funder s interests the chances of securing a grant are slim As Kate stresses to us A foundation or company whose primary interest is in promoting recycling and other environmental issues isn t going to support a project that matches seniors with children If it doesn t match the funder s mandate it doesn t matter how eloquent it is They won t fund it and it is very disheartening Do your research For further reading on identifying appropriate funding prospects check out Building Your Prospect List What Makes a Good Funder Invest in the Editing Process
